The Incredulous Reaction To Erling Haaland's Spectacular Winner Against Dortmund

The Incredulous Reaction To Erling Haaland's Spectacular Winner Against Dortmund
By Michael Bolton Updated

An outrageous late finish from Erling Haaland against his former side Borussia Dortmund secured victory for Manchester City in the Champions League.

In a game where City were far from their best, after a dull first half, England midfielder Jude Bellingham headed Dortmund in front, putting interested clubs on further alert with his all-action display tonight.

While City pushed for a winner, it looked like Dortmund were going to hold on for a surprising win at the Etihad, until an unlikely source in John Stones scored a rocket from outside the box to draw City level.

Four minutes later, Joao Cancelo's superb cross was met by an acrobatic volley from Erling Haaland to seal victory for Pep Guardiola’s side.

The goal was Haaland’s 13th of thie season, and his 26th Champions League goal in 22 games, showing why he will be one of the best players in the world for years to come.

Despite not having his best game for Manchester City, the ability to produce moments of magic like tonight’s goal will be crucial to Guardiola’s side as they chase their first ever Champions League title.

“In the end, I am happy with the last 20,25, 30 minutes. Two wonderful goals today, mine was a bit better, honestly. Cancelo, nice cross. In the end a really important win.”

When asked by the reporter how Dortmund frustrated him for large parts of the game, his response was:

“They didn’t stop me, I scored.”
