Erling Haaland showed off his remarkable pace to score off a devastating counter-attack with Jadon Sancho for Borussia Dortmund tonight. The Norwegian striker bagged a brace in Dortmund's 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.
Look away Manchester United fans.
Already having scored 18 goals in 20 appearances for the German side in all competitions, Haaland again showed why he is one of the biggest talents at the striker position that the world hasn't seen in a very long time.

Dortmund were in action against Borussia Monchengladbach, winning 3-0 with two goals from Haaland and one from American young talent, Giovanni Reyna.
The goal that topped them all though was Haaland's second goal of the night which came from a failed corner of Monchengladbach's.
That counter from Jadon Sancho :zap:

With Sancho picking up the ball from the edge of his own box and showing off his equally-devastating pace, the 6'4" Norwegian giant showed he wasn't just physicality, matching Sancho's pace to Monchengladbach's box.
A deft through-ball from Sancho opened up the goal for Haaland to easily slot the ball into the back of the net and to finish off the game 3-0 to Dortmund.
Both players have been linked to join Manchester United over the past 12 months with Haaland changing his mind last minute after sources claimed that Haaland had agreed to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to join United, before joining Dortmund from RB Salzburg.
Look at Haaland when Dortmund win the header! He already knows in his own box that there's a chance to score!!

Sancho is still in talks with Manchester United, with United being unwilling to pay the quoted €120 million Dortmund are asking for.
Regardless of their short-term futures, the duo, and especially Haaland will become some of the greatest players we will get to lay our eyes on.
What do you think of Haaland's insane acceleration for his second goal?
