Manchester City striker Erling Haaland pulls out of Norway squad through injury
Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has pulled out of the Norway squad for their opening Euro 2024 qualifiers through injury.
The 22 year old Haaland picked up a groin problem after scoring a hat-trick in City’s 6-nil thrashing of Burnley in the FA cup quarter-final on Saturday.
It means he will miss Norway’s games against Spain and Georgia in group A. Haaland has scored 21 goals in 23 appearances for Norway since making his debut as a 19-year-old in September 2019.
His treble for city against Burnley took his tally to 42 goals in 37 games in all competitions so far this season, including five goals in a 7-nil hammering of RB Leipzig in the Champions League earlier this month.
