Erling Haaland is back ladies and gentlemen. The 22-year-old Norwegian superstar has spent the last month patiently waiting for the club season to resume. His last game for Manchester City was on Nov. 12 in which he failed to score.
That wouldn’t be the case against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup on Thursday.
Haaland needed less than 10 minutes to score in his first game back from the World Cup break. Everyone has been raving and ranting about Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi for the past three weeks that we almost forgot about Europe’s most prolific goal scorer.
Here’s goal No. 24 for Haaland in his 19th appearance of the season. Surprise, surprise, it was Kevin De Bruyne with the assist.
The next Ballon d'Or race is going to be VERY exciting.
