Arsenal football club faces fear over star Player who was subbed off during the international break just before half time.
The Arsenal player twisted his ankle and was subbed of five minutes into the end of the first half.
Arsenal loan signing from Real Madrid, Martin Odegaard sustained an ankle injury during the first half while he captained his side for the first time during international duty for Norway against Gibraltar.
The young playmaker was forced to come out with five minutes left before half time during the World Cup qualifying match.
This may be a potential blow for Arsenal as the player has been impressive since joining from Real Madrid on loan. However, Norway's coach has played down the fears insisting that the injury is not serious and that he is certain that Odegaard will be fit for their next match on Saturday.
Speaking after his 3-0 victory over Gibraltar, he said: " It is not a serious injury, I have big hopes that Martin will be fit for the game against Turkey on Saturday.’
Martin Odegaard was also positive about returning to Norway’s next World Cup qualifier against Turkey on Saturday. He told reporters after last night's match: "I twisted my ankle, but I think I will be fit for the game on Saturday."
Arsenal will be hopeful Martin Odegaard returns fit when the EPL returns as they would be playing against Liverpool.
