Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland’s attitude has been heavily criticized after Norway’s disappointing loss to Turkey in the World Cup Qualifiers.
The Borussia Dortmund attacker who has been in fine form lately could not do anything to help his country overcome a nightmare that could have been averted.
With the likes of Alexander Sørloth and Martin Martin Ødegaard starting for the Norwegian team alongside Haaland, much was expected from the boys even though Turkey is not a small team.
Following Haaland’s poor form for his country in the Qualifiers, former Norwegian national team player Bernt Hulsker has criticized the player’s effort, compared to the number of goals he has scored for Dortmund since the start of the new season.
He gives the impression of not wanting to be here. In Dortmund, he holds his head as soon as he misses a pass. In selection, he gives up “, said the former international as published by Walfoot.
Erling Haaland’s stats and why the ex-international is not happy with him
33 goals in 31 goals is not an easy thing to do for a striker of his age. But his consistency shows his class and quality, a reason behind the rumours linking him with Chelsea in the Premier League.
He is indeed one of the hottest talents in world football at the moment. A reason why he is expected to score.
Having Haaland, Ødegaard and Alexander Sorloth is a blessing for Norway. But the inability to score goals is a big worry compared to the player’s form at their various clubs.
Hopefully, Erling Haaland would help his country reach the finals in Qatar next year.
