Even after the break, Haaland is said to have gone into the dressing room with a lot of anger in his stomach. “I f *** ing hate this. F *** ing bullshit”, the scorer said loudly imagewho appealed to ear witnesses.
“Erling had five degrees and scored two goals again. Nevertheless, you can see his disappointment today because he wanted to leave the field with three points. This will to win distinguishes him. He shows us that every day and you once or twice a week”, had said BVB coach Edin Terzic.
Haaland is critical of a possible World Cup boycott of the Norwegian national team. “I haven’t found out enough about it yet and still have to discuss it with my team-mates. But I would like to play tournaments with Norway,” he emphasized.

Several Norwegian first division clubs and a broad fan base have joined the boycott movement launched by the Tromsö IL club. The clubs and supporters see the awarding of the World Cup to the desert state as a serious mistake because of the human rights situation there.
