Erling Haaland hits incredible 50-50 milestone to cement phenom status
Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland marked his return from injury with a goal that now takes his Bundesliga record to 50 goals in 50 games. The Norwegian scored Dortmund’s third goal of the game to seal their 3-1 win against Vfl Wolfsburg.
Initially, the prolific striker was meant to be out until 2022, but his recovery was completed sooner than expected. His return will be a welcoming sight for Dortmund supporters who have watched their club falter at times in his absence.
The phenom marked his return in typical Erling Haaland fashion, netting a goal just 7 minutes after entering the game. Julian Brandt whipped in a cross from the edge of the box for Haaland to simply guide into the goal. It was the perfect demonstration of a killer instinct that has left many fans excited for what Haaland will accomplish. Opposition fans will feel differently, however, as they watch their teams fail to hold back this force of nature.
Haaland now has a total of 50 goals in 50 games in the Bundesliga since signing for Dortmund in December 2019. An average of 1 goal a game is an achievement many players can only dream of, and Haaland has managed it at only 21-years of age. In that same 50-game time span, he has also chipped in with 15 assists for his teammates, showing his ability not just to finish off goals but to supply them as well.
Still only at the beginning of his career, the future looks bright for the Borussia Dortmund star who will continue to entertain fans with his goalscoring prowess. With a goal-per-game ratio worthy of some of the greats, the sky is the limit for Erling Haaland.
