The Borussia Dortmund striker has had a frustrating time of it in Norway's first two World Cup qualifiers. Haaland surprisingly didn't find the net in his team's 3-0 win over Gibraltar, before the Norwegians suffered a chastening 3-0 defeat at home to Turkey.
So the 20-year-old had plenty of pent-up anger in his system before tonight's match in Montenegro - and took it out on one poor, unsuspecting, football.
In a simple training drill, Haaland chips the ball to one of Norway's trainers, who catches it and throws it up for the volley.
Haaland smashes the ball so hard into the top corner of the net that the goalkeeper does not even have a chance to move. The sheer force is incredible.

As Haaland's teammates shout in approval, the striker puts his hand over his mouth, then holds his leg and pretends to limp as if the power of the rocket he just launched has done him permanent damage.
Borussia Dortmund fans can rest easy that the player, who's scored 49 goals in 49 games for the club since his 2020 arrival from Red Bull Salzburg, is not in fact injured.
However there is speculation surrounding how much longer he will be playing for Borussia.
The Bundesliga club are struggling domestically this season and, with Haaland breaking Champions League goalscoring records, Europe's biggest clubs - from Real Madrid to Manchester United and Manchester City - are reportedly preparing summer bids.

At least nobody can sign Haaland away from Norway (despite the fact that he was born in Leeds while his father Alf-Inge played professionally in England), so his international future is set.
And judging by what he's doing in training, we wouldn't expect his two-game goal "drought" to go on for very much longer.
