Erling Haaland has once again impressed everyone on Tuesday night, as he scored both goals in Borussia Dortmund’s 2-2 draw with Sevilla.
Edin Terzic’s side have managed to qualify for the next round in the Champions League, and worldwide sensation Haaland had a huge input in that.
The 20-year-old has been attracting a lot of interest from big-name clubs, including Manchester United, and head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was once again asked about his countryman.
Haaland is the Champions League’s current top scorer with 10 goals and has broken a record of scoring the most goals (20) in fewest games (14).
20 – Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has now scored 20 goals in 14 UEFA Champions League appearances; the quickest a player has ever reached 20 goals in the competition, and in 10 fewer appearances than the previous record holder (Harry Kane, 24). Astonishing. pic.twitter.com/jaUCwVmIks

“It was just a matter of time before he scored more goals than me in the Champions League,” said Solskjaer.
“Not many more superlatives to use. Whatever I want to say i will say in Norwegian directly to him.
“It probably wasn’t proper Champions League (qualifier).
“I have been told so much about records and stats – but I don’t look back on it. My focus is to get better.
“I will gladly give away all my records to improve what i’m doing now.”
