The most famous soccer players aren’t just stars of their sport, they’re global icons recognized off the pitch too. An Erling Haaland Kim Kardashian crossover is a prime example of how even celebrities freak out when meeting soccer’s biggest names.
Kardashian is one of the most recognizable figures in the celebrity world and the 43-year-old admitted that even she was starstruck when she bumped into Manchester City’s ace.
The two met at a Dolce and Gabbana fashion event in Italy and Kardashian shared how she immediately FaceTimed her 7-year-old son Saint to show him Haaland.

Kardashian isn’t new to the soccer scene as she’s been spotted at several games over the past year.
“I don't know every team. I'm not going to pick a team just yet. But yeah, I'm a soccer mom,” Kardashian said.
While soccer is undoubtedly the most popular sport on the planet, it’s still got some ground to make up in the United States. To see one of America’s biggest celebrities immersing herself and her family into the sport is a great sight, even if you’re not a fan of her.
Kardashian, who used to play soccer, has strayed away from picking one team as her own as she’s been attended games with the likes of Arsenal, PSG, Al Nassr and Inter Miami.
