ERLING HAALAND has left a reporter red-faced after scoring with his “balls” against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
The Norwegian superstar scored two goals against the Blues in a dramatic 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge – but his second brace was somewhat special.Haaland left a reporter red-face after scoring with his ‘balls’[/caption] The striker skidded in front of Reece James to plough the ball over the line with his crotch/butt.[/caption] Haaland was lit up by the way he found the back of the net in his 13th goal of the season[/caption]
There was no surprise with Erling Haaland’s first goal – a classic spot-kick from the Norwegian opened the game up for Man City.
Then levelled at halftime after Manuel Akanji‘s strike the 23-year-old within 90 seconds of the restart pushed his side back to the front.
First Haaland skinned Moises Caicedo with a neat turn and pass on the halfway line.
His second goal was so bizarre it left reporters stunned after the match.
The striker was asked about his second goal and was lit up about how the ball flew into the net.
He told Viaplay: “I have never scored with my balls before. So that is a milestone.”
But after taking his side into the lead twice it was not enough to secure the three points.
Meanwhile, last season’s Premier League Golden Boot winner is off to another tremendous start with his 13th league goal of the term.
Haaland is now the quickest player in top-flight English football to reach 50 goals – in 47 league games – while breaking the record with a crotch/butt-scoring goal.
He thrashed the previous holder Andy Cole who reached the milestone in 65 matches.
