Borussia Dortmund phenom Erling Haaland scored a spectacular goal for Norway during their Nations League clash.


The 20-year-old produced a moment of magic to make it 2-1 against Northern Ireland on Monday.

He struck a stinging side-foot volley into the back of the net, leaving goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell with no chance in goal.

He then scored his second goal of the night with a stunning curling effort in the 58th minute.

Needless to say, Haaland's heroics sent social media into overdrive.

One Twitter user wrote: "The way this man treats a football is ridiculous - good for him he's only going to get better but bad news for the oppos who've got to play against him."

A second tweeted: "He's got great off the ball movement and insane finishing with both feet. Consistency AND turns up in big games. Gonna be special."

A third added: "Haaland is a cheat code man. What a goal. What a player. Robot. So happy he plays for us."
