Erling Haaland Scores From 'Impossible' Angle To Continue Incredible BVB Form
Erling Haaland continued his incredible start to life as a Borussia Dortmund player with a brace in the 5-1 thrashing of FC Koln.
The Norwegian bagged a stunning 23 minute hat-trick from the bench on his debut against Augsburg last week, yet somehow Haaland's three-goal haul wasn't enough to warrant a starting spot in Lucien Favre's XI last night.
But when the 19-year old powerhouse entered the fray as a substitute, he followed on from last week's heroics with a late double.
His first wasn't all that special; a tap-in 13 minutes after coming on but his second goal was superbly taken.
Haaland darted in behind the opposition backline in the 87th minute and though slightly off balance when he rounded the goalkeeper, he regained his composure and casually converted from a difficult angle.

Incredibly, Haaland has made history in scoring five goals in just under an hour of action in the Bundesliga - finding the net on every occasion from his first five efforts on goal.
Dortmund beat the likes of Manchester United, Juventus and Real Madrid to secure Haaland's services from Red Bull Salzburg, reportedly paying just £17 million to land him.
Explaining why he chose the German giants, Haaland told BVB.TV, via the official Bundesliga website: "The club said directly: 'we need you up front. We like your playing style and we want to have you here'.
"I liked how they spoke to me then and that's what triggered me. That's when I felt that me and Dortmund was a good match."
With an incredible tally of 33 goals in 24 games for Salzburg and Dortmund this season, Haaland looks set to be one of the hottest striker commodities in world football for years to come.
