Erling Braut Håland has had the sensational year 2020. In Norway, the serial scorer returned to his most vivid memories.
33 goals and 6 assists in 32 matches in all competitions with Borussia Dortmund. Six goals and one dedication in five caps for Norway. Current top scorer in the Champions League group stage with 6 pawns in 4 appearances. Winner of the Golden Boy rewarding the best player under 21 playing in Europe. 2020 has undoubtedly been the year of Erling Braut Håland (20). VG could only bow to the phenomenon, awarding the formidable scorer the prestigious Norwegian Sportsman of the Year award, writing his name on the charts alongside other footballers like John Carew, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and John Arne Riise. Invited to look back on his last crazy months, the young man told his best memories. “It’s difficult to choose just one moment, but if I have to choose just one, it would be either my debut with Dortmund or my first Champions League game with Dortmund against PSG,” he said before to develop. “BVB, I’ve been there for two and a half weeks, I was a bit injured, I don’t know if I’m in the team for the first match, I don’t start, I take my place on the bench, l ‘team is struggling, then I go in and I score a hat trick.
His best goal in 2020 against PSG
His double against Paris SG in the round of 16 first leg of C1 (2-1) also deeply marked him. More particularly his second goal, with a dry strike that had pierced Keylor Navas. “It’s probably the best goal I have scored in 2020. I think it’s the case. So that was just… good question… it was a good time, I have to say. It’s difficult to put words on it. It is an incredibly huge picture. Just a good time, ” he fondly remembered looking at the images of his celebration with Raphaël Guerreiro. PSG will therefore remain one of Håland’s best memories of the year. The converse is undoubtedly true, since, on the return, Neymar and his band had broken the curse of the round of 16 by eliminating the club from the Ruhr and by chambering as it should be the Scandinavian lotus celebration on the first leg. Injured for a few weeks and therefore stopped, the insatiable striker wants to retain only the positive. “I prefer to try and only look at the highs. These are the ones that I will take away. By 2021, then we must set new heights. You have to set high goals, ”he concluded. Bundesliga and European defenses have been warned, Erling Braut Håland has every intention of doing even better in 2021!
