Alexander Ødegaard (born 13 September 1980 in Voss) is a Norwegian former footballer. He played four times for the Norwegian national team, scoring one goal, and has played professionally for Sogndal, Rosenborg, Viking and French club Metz.

Career[edit]

Ødegaard was one of the 1980 generation players to break into the first team of Sogndal IL. After a successful 2004 season where he scored 15 league goals for Sogndal, and made his international debut for Norway, his services were wanted by Brann and Rosenborg.[2] He chose the 13-in-a-row league champions Rosenborg, but his first season was a disappointment, as Rosenborg failed to win the title. After the season, he was sold to Viking in a deal worth €875.000.

On 24 January 2011, he signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with French side Metz in Ligue 2.

In August 2012, Ødegaard returned to Norway, where he signed for his youth club – the Third Division side Førde.[3]
