Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland will be relishing the chance to play in the Nations League once again when his native Norway travel to Romania on Sunday.
The 20-year-old has been an absolute revelation since his move to Germany, and so far has scored 11 goals in as many matches this season to give a usually unrivalled Robert Lewandowski something to think about in the race for the Bundesliga Golden Boot.
While his club form continues to highlight his enormous potential, his performances for Norway have been much the same. Most notably, he has scored six goals in four games during this season’s Nations League, including a breathtaking hat-trick against this weekend’s opponents Romania.
Alongside generational talents such as Martin Odegaard and Jean Peter Hauge, Haaland looks to be at the forefront of an exciting young Norway side who have scored more goals than any other side in the Nations League. It would come as no surprise to see Haaland get on the scoresheet on Sunday evening, and we’ve tipped him to score and beat the Romanians at 9/5.
