Watch: Martin Odegaard Scores Opening Goal Against Republic Of Ireland U21s

There is another game of Irish importance tonight, believe it or not. The Republic of Ireland under 21s are currently playing Norway in the under-21 European Championship qualifying campaign.

Noel King's side went into the match tied on top of the group, but expected their toughest game yet in Dremmen against a Norway side which included underage sensation Martin Ødegaard.

Ødegaard opened the scoring with a cool finish to put his side 1-0 up.

The Real Madrid star is currently on loan at Dutch club SC Heerenveen. However, his strike did not dampen the Irish side's spirit with Jack Mulraney landing a superb individual effort to bring the game back to 1-1.

A win for Norway would take them over Ireland in the group, while a result for Ireland would be a fantastic platform to carry them into two games against the other side at the top of the group, Germany. The game is live on Eir Sport.
