Round-up: Real Madrid midfielder Martin Odegaard was the best man on the park as Norway and Sweden drew 0-0 in an Oslo friendly.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic blew two decent chances in the first half to give Sweden the lead, but it was Odegaard who impressed with an oustanding effort.

The 16-year-old playmaker produced a lovely pass in the second half for Alexander Soderlund, but the Rosenborg forward failed to beat former Manchester City goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson, who made the stop.

Odegaard could be farmed out on loan for a season in Ligato continue his development with Valencia and Real Betis apparently interested, and won't have done his prospects any harm with his performance against their local rivlas.

In other friendlies played on Monday, Denmark came from behind to complete a 2-1 win over Montenegro while Turkey ran out 4-0 winners over Bulgaria.
