Erling Haaland needed less than 15 minutes to score his first goal for Manchester City.
During his debut on Saturday in a friendly against Bayern Munich at Lambeu Field, Haaland immediately got to work and didn’t waste any time making his presence felt. In the 12th minute of the contest, he found the back of the net after Jack Grealish found a hole on the defense and served a cross to the Norwegian youngster.
Haaland displayed a nice touch to get the ball into the net for his first goal with the Premier League club.
