Erling Haaland Ran 60m In World Championship Time During PSG Game

Erling Haaland Ran 60m In World Championship Time During PSG Game

Erling Haaland had another incredible game on Tuesday night and amazed football fans with a speedy 60m sprint that was good enough for the World Championships.

The Norwegian wonderkid has taken football by storm in the last year and his high profile move to Borussia Dortmund in January hasn't slowed him down at all.

Never was that more evident than on Tuesday night when he scored twice against PSG in the Champions League and was clocked running 60 metres in just 6.64 seconds, a pace that would have put him in the World Indoor Championship 60m final in 2018.


Eighth placed runner Emre Zafer Barnes in the final of the race in Birmingham two years ago and Haaland's pace was only three tenths of the world record for the distance.

The world record is set at 6.34 and is held by Christian Coleman, who ran the time in 2018 in Albuquerque.

Haaland's run was obviously done with a running start and with momentum behind him but it proves another facet to the striker's arsenal of weapons along with his movement, strength and incredible striking ability.

The 19-year-old scored his ninth and 10th Champions League goals this season, the first eight coming for Red Bull Salzburg, as Dortmund won the last 16 first leg game 2-1 against PSG.

Lucian Favre's side were the better team for much of the game and Haaland scored in the 69th to give Dortmund the lead.

It took just six minutes for Neymar to equalise for the Ligue 1 leaders but just two minutes later the Leeds born wonderkid scored his second to give the German's the lead heading into the second leg back in Paris.

The teenager cost Dortmund just €20 million in the winter transfer window, after they beat Manchester United to his signature, and has already scored 10 goals in just 395 minutes across two competitions.

He is a goalscoring machine and quick as anything too, it's like being chased by a football Terminator. Good luck defenders for the next 10 years, you're going to need it.
