At 15, Strømsgodset IF's Martin Ødegaard has received his first competitive senior international call-up for Norway. The attacking midfielder, who made his first-team debut for his club in April, made his first senior international appearance in a friendly game against the United Arab Emirates in August aged 15 years and 253 days – a new national record – and could now feature in the Group H encounters against Malta and Bulgaria. Should he do so, he would be the youngest player ever to feature in a UEFA European Championship game.

After some early showers, Oslo is now basking in sunshine - even if the temperature may not quite be what Italy left behind back home yesterday - and the neat Ullevaal Stadion is already a hive of activity with people undertaking their daily chores in the shops which slot into the multi-purpose venue. The first fans are also turning up to catch a glimpse of the stadium where Norway will host Italy at 20.45. Decorations around the stadium ensure nobody will be unaware of tonight's big event, when the road to UEFA EURO 2016 starts in Group H.
