Erling Haaland was booed by his own fans after Norway's loss to Scotland

Erling Haaland's popularity seems like it would never be burst but the striker was booed by Norway fans despite scoring in his side's loss to Scotland.

There's been lots to celebrate all season for any one who is a supporter of Haaland or the Manchester City team he's broken countless records for.

He poured Champagne over Jack Grealish as the pair and their teammates took in an open top bus tour of Manchester to show off their Treble of trophies.

The last couple of days have seen those City players get back into training and action for their national teams, though Gareth Southgate wisely decided not to start any of his five for England.

Haaland didn't have the luxury of extra rest on Saturday however as he was thrown straight back into action for Norway's Euro 2024 qualifier with Scotland.

The 22-year-old opened the scoring just after the hour mark from the penalty spot and the hosts looked to be cruising to all three points.

However he was subbed off in the 84th minute and the Scandinavians then collapsed, conceding in the 87th and 89th minutes to lose.

Footage from after the match showed a group of fans of Stale Solbakken's team waiting for Haaland and then booing them after he ignored them to get straight on the team bus.

The loss was a huge blow to the hosts chances of qualifying for the tournament next summer, which is being held in Germany.

They haven't qualified for a tournament since Euro 2000 and with Haaland and Martin Odegaard amongst their ranks might have thought this was a perfect opportunity to right that record.

However the loss to Scotland means they have picked up just one point from their first three matches and are now eight points behind Saturday's visitors.

Having themselves previously failed to qualify for a tournament after the 1998 World Cup, the Scots are now on the verge of making it to two Euros in-a-row, after being part of the 2021 tournament.
