David Gold has hailed the talent of youngster Martin Samuelsen, who scored his first goal for Norway on Tuesday night.
The 19-year-old, who is currently loan at Championship club Blackburn Rovers, helped his country avoid a potential upset against minnows San Marino, who had pegged Norway to 1-1 with only their third competitive goal since October 2008.
