New Real Madrid signing Martin Odegaard was introduced to the media on Thursday.

If Martin Odegaard really doesn't feel any pressure on his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, then part of the battle in his quest to rise from teenage wonderkid to Real Madrid 'Galactico' has already been won. It is, however, a big if.

To fully grasp Martin Odegaard's age, consider the fact that he wasn't alive the last time Norway featured in a World Cup. Born little more than 16 years ago in Drammen, a small city southwest of Oslo, he was five months too late to be alive for his nation's run to the last 16 of France 98, though father Hans Erik certainly was. A midfielder for Stromsgodset between 1993 and 2003, Hans Erik is now better known as the man who took young Martin on a very public road show of Europe's top clubs throughout...
