Five was to six Friday night for the Jens Odgaard.
The Danish striker is in terrific form for the time being, and followed up on the much-talked-drømmemål for the Danish U21 national team in October with yet another treat, since he was the match winner for Heerenveen in a 3-2 victory over Vitesse. With a goal, where Jens Odgaard face with a man in the back and tames the ball with højrefoden, before cracking it into the left favoritben.
"It was pure instinct, and some of my goals are easy, but it is as if it has been a bit of a habit for me that I score the difficult goals. But I take as are also the easy targets with, I am not too shy to," says Jens Odgaard day then to B. T.
His six goals abroad brings him up to the top of the most scoring Danish invaders in the major foreign leagues.
the List looks like this:1. Jens Odgaard, six goals in Æresdivisionen2. Andreas Cornelius, five goals in the Series A3. Martin Braithwaite, three goals in La Liga4. Kasper Dolberg, three goals in Ligue 15. Yussuf Poulsen, two goals in the Bundesligaen6. Nicolai Jørgensen, two goals in the Æresdivisionen
"It's great to know that I am number one on the list, and I have 100 percent going to be continuing to enhance it more and just fill up on in the coming weekends. I need to develop myself as optimally as possible, and so I hope that målformen just get by," explains Jens Odgaard, whose goal, incidentally, was instrumental in the Vitesses coach, Leonid Slutsky, after the match said his job up.
Inter used him in his youth team, and a year after the smoke he passed to Sassuolo. But here was the dane hit by several muscle injuries, so it was only for 15 minutes of playing time in Serie A.
So in the summer he went on the hunt for safe playing and said yes to a year's lejeophold in Heerenveen.
"In Sassuolo I came into some unfortunate periods of my damage. They went up a few times, and it was to put it mildly, not so good, and it set maybe a little brakes on my development. And so, the level is also just as high in Serie A, it was difficult to get into the starting line-up with the damage. It was also one of the reasons I looked further to see if I could not get the chance in a different place. The netherlands was for me absolutely perfect, because the level suits me, and it is a place, the young people get the chance, so it is ideal."
"I got started with målscoringen, while at the same time the team are doing well with our current fourth place in the Æresdivisionen, so it is super positive. The plan has from the start been, that I should be the one who scored the goals, and I am of course happy to be able to meet now, after I had a good preseason. Then it went a little quiet in the beginning of the season with goals, but now running as it should."
"The hardest thing on a football pitch is to score goals, and sometimes it doesn't come, but other times it comes in the shoals, and for me, it is now on to keep it running. I can feel that I have it good, and that I do not go around and think of the damage more. Now I feel just free and player, player and player. It is really good. The targets have always been in me, but now I have got shown that I constantly have the game at such a high level that I just needed to have the chance," says Denmark's currently most dangerous attacker.
