Leeds Fans Get Excited After Erling Haaland Asks Stuart Dallas For His Shirt
The Borussia Dortmund goal machine struck two superb goals, including a glorious side-foot volley, as Norway thumped Northern Ireland 5-1 in the UEFA Nations League - even paying tribute to his hero by imitating former Swansea City striker Michu's celebration after scoring his 18th goal of 2020.
Then, just after the game, Haaland was seen going out of his way to swap shirts with Dallas, who played 41 times and was voted the club's Player of the Year as they won promotion to the Premier League last season.
Having been born in the Yorkshire town while his dad Alf-Inge was playing there, Haaland has a strong affiliation for Leeds - and their supporters absolutely loved him wanting to swap shirts with one of their players.
