Manchester City’s newest striker Erling Haaland continued his prolific international form as he scored two goals to help his country Norway beat Sweden 3-2 in an entertaining Nations League Group B4 encounter.
Erling Haaland Aims Higher Record with Country
The in-bound Manchester City forward headed in to open the scoring in the first half and doubled Norway’s lead from the spot in the second half of the game.
Erling Haaland has now scored 20 goals in 21 games and he is just 14 away from being the top men’s scorer in Norway’s history. The 21-year-old also set up Norway’s third as Alexander Sorloth made it 3-1.
That came after Emil Forsberg pulled one back with a smart finish from Tottenham forward Dejan Kulusevski’s assist, while Viktor Gyokeres set up a nervy finish with another in the 95th minute to make it 3-2.
