Matthiessen caught fire during a live broadcast on TV 2. Many say this is true.

The pass turned the entire Danish defense onto Haaland. The striker was relentless and reduced to 1-2.

Norway lost 1-3. But Odegaard's pass was a brutal moment at Brøndby.

The captain was not far from the center circle when he shot the ball through the knuckles. Haaland caught it inside the 16-meter area. The City striker did not fail.

– It shouldn't be possible to find Haaland behind the Denmark defense there. Look at this then, Oyvind! Matthiessen shouted on live television.

– Where do you find this type of pass?

Colleague Øyvind Saker was also impressed. But when Dagbladet asked coach Stahl Solbakken whether the pass was one of the wildest things on Danish soil – the former Copenhagen coach responded:

– I have been on Danish soil a little longer than him (Mathisen). I've watched a lot of matches on Danish soil, on and off the field.

Soulbakin smiled secretly. But he did not immediately evaluate Odegaard's performance on Danish soil.

When Dagbladet asked the captain about the pass, he replied humbly:

– It was good, that one.

Another journalist followed up by referring to Matthiessen's claim:

– Well, I don't know that, he replied.

– There were many good players here. I won't talk about that. But it was a beautiful goal and a good pass.

- Calm down

– Calm down


In the player exchange in Dagbladet, Odegaard took seven points – as Norway's best man. In Denmark also they are called Ødegaard. The cue sheet indicates the pass – same as Matthiessen.

The pass alone is good enough to name Arsenal's best Norwegian captain, the newspaper reported.

Immediately after the match, most of the players went straight on vacation. This means that the world will not see Odegaard's passes for a few weeks.

The captain says the start was not good against Denmark, but Norway played well.

– Especially in the second half, we were much better than them. Then I actually thought we would be able to turn things around or break even. That was imminent. But then we missed the last goal, Odegaard points out.
