Erling Haaland and Virgil van Dijk faced off each other when Norway played a 1-1 draw with Netherlands in the World Cup Qualifiers on Wednesday.
Haaland opened the scoring for Norway, while Davy Klaassen equalized for the Netherlands.
Following the game, Haaland said on Van Dijk to tia (via AnfieldWatch): “I think he is the best defender. I think quite a few others in the room agree with me on that. He is fast, strong and smart, and those are three important things you must have.”
And fans have been reacting on Twitter.
someone tell haaland that he doesn’t have to match up against the world’s best defender if they’re in the same team😏 https://t.co/ZFtNrI9RBB
