Erling Haaland enjoyed one of the best debuts in football history on Saturday.

Haaland joined Borussia Dortmund in January transfer window, following his impressive season at RB Salzburg, where he scored 29 goals in 27 games.

In the 56th minute of the game against Augsburg, with Borussia 3-1 down, boss Lucien Favre decided to give Haaland a chance to shine.

It took just three minutes into his debut, to score a goal. In the 70th minute, Haaland scored again and the 19-year-old completed his hat-trick nine minutes later.

Three goals in 23 minutes is a superb performance in debut.

But Haaland isn’t the only player who’s had a near-perfect debut. Here are five players that also impressed on their debut for the club.
