At the score 5-3 and 57 minutes into tonight's game against Getafe, Martin Ødegaard (16) debuted for Real Madrid, on the magnificent Santiago Bernabeu.
He was the team's third and final substitution when he swapped with Cristiano Ronaldo, after receiving instructions by assistant coach Higuerro.
The Norwegian thus became the youngest Real Madrid player ever in La Liga, with his 16 years and 158 days. In addition, he is the first Norwegian to put on the traditional white jerseys.
With number 41 on his back.
The 16-year-old did not score any goals, but if he is still looking for the record as the team's youngest goalscorer ever, he has plenty of time. Raúl Gonzales has the record from 1994. Raúl was 18 years and 113 days when he scored his first for Real Madrid.
