Norway deserves better' - Odegaard slams Hegerberg's World Cup absence

The Lyon forward has come under fire from her compatriot following her comments regarding her place in the Norwegian national team's setup
Martin Odegaard said the Norway women's team "deserves better" in scathing criticism aimed at Ballon d'Or-winning striker Ada Hegerberg following her decision not to play at the Women's World Cup.
Hegerberg has not represented Norway for the last two years and explained her reasons for not making herself available for the tournament in France, saying her experience at the 2017 European Championship left her "broken mentally" while also describing it as “deeply depressing” as she criticised the state of women's football in Norway.
She described how playing for her country had left her feeling like "a worse player" but Real Madrid midfielder Odegaard fired Hegerberg a broadside in a message on Instagram.
