It's news: Erling Haaland didn't score a goal in a matchThe Norwegian forward did not score in the match against Gibraltar
Norway started their participation in the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers on the right foot as they won a solid 3-0 win over Gibraltar. However, the news of the meeting was that Erling Haaland could not score a goal, something that drew attention since in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund he scores in each presentation and on Wednesday, against an inferior rival, he could not do it.
For example, this season, the Wonder Boy has 21 goals in 21 Bundesliga games with Borussia Dortmund with an irregular campaign and scored 10 goals in six appearances in the Champions League that he still has in competition (in the quarterfinals he will face Manchester City). With that clean and jerk he went out to play with his national team.
And Norway dominated Gibraltar from start to finish, had 84% possession and kicked 29 times to the rival goal, but Haaland could not score (he had a couple of opportunities) and left the field at 16 minutes of the second half, when his team had already scored by three goals. Is that the coach Stale Solbakken took care of him for what is coming: on Saturday he receives Turkey (who beat the Netherlands in his debut) and on Tuesday he visits Montenegro, in another meeting that is difficult for the Scandinavians.
Those who were able to do what Haaland usually does, that is, goals, were Alexander Sorloth (from Leipzig), Kristian Thorstvedt (Genk) and Jonas Svensson (AZ Alkmaar). In his team, Haaland has 30 goals in 33 games (six in eight with the Major).
