Following the game, a stat emerged that puts into perspective just how efficient he is. 70 goals from 91 shots means Haaland has a 76% conversion rate when at least hitting the target.

Haaland reaching 15 European goals puts him ahead of Brazilian icon Ronaldo Nazario as well as World Cup winning trio Zinedine Zidane, David Villa and Miroslav Klose.

What will worry most defenders in world football is that Haaland is nowhere near his prime and already possesses incredible technique and work ethic.

It caps off a remarkable week for the Norwegian who won the 2020 Golden Boy award, in addition to scoring four goals against Hertha Berlin in he Bundesliga on Saturday.

Ridiculously, Haaland now has 23 goals in 22 games in the German top-flight - only Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has managed more in that time.

Following the game, he admitted he was annoyed to be substituted after netting four, because he wanted more.

"To be honest after the game, he [coach Lucien Favre] asked me how many I scored," he told ESPN.

"He asked me: Did you score three?" "I said: No, four. Only four because you subbed me out. So I'm a bit mad at him (**smiles**) right now but that's how it is."

Do you think Erling Haaland is one of the best strikers in world football?
