Erling Haaland Scores Incredible Winner As He Records Champions League First

Erling Haaland Scores Incredible Winner As He Records Champions League First

Erling Haaland has come out of nowhere to establish himself as one of the biggest stars in world football. Hardly anybody had heard of the Norwegian 12 months ago, but he now looks like he could dominate the game for the next decade.

His scoring run in the Austrian Bundesliga was one thing, but to see him continue that record with Borussia Dortmund is an altogether different matter.

They faced PSG in the Champions League this evening, with all eyes on the 19-year old. He didn't disappoint.

He gave his side the lead in the 69th minute, reacting fastest to a loose ball in the penalty area to steer home the opener.

With that goal, he recorded a first in Champions League history.

Of course, this was only possible due to UEFA lifting the rules around cup-tied players in the past couple of seasons.

While Neymar would equalise in the 75th minute, capitalising on some brilliance from teammate Kylian Mbappe.

It wasn't long before Haaland had his side back in front. If their was a hint of fortune about his first goal, this one was a piece of brilliance.

The German side would hang onto the win and will now bring a one goal advantage to Paris in three weeks. You wouldn't back against Haaland coming up big once again on that occasion.
