The world of football had been devoid of some entertainment on the field with Erling Haaland out of action for a while due to a hip injury. Borussia Dortmund were undoubtedly missing their star striker and he finally marked his return after six weeks during the Bundesliga match against Wolfsburg on Saturday. And Haaland did not take much time to re-announce his arrival!
After being introduced on the field in the 73rd minute, the 21-year-old produced an emphatic finish off Julian Brandt’s cross to score after only 7 minutes on his return. It was notably Haaland’s 50th Bundesliga goal in the 50th match, speaking volumes about the outstanding impact he has had in Germany.
Erling Haaland has scored just 7 minutes into his return from injury.
He now has 50 Bundesliga goals in 50 games…at just 21 years old.

While it was a typical Haaland goal which did not really surprise anyone, his reaction was quite cheeky. After finding the back of the net, the youngster went towards the end where a few Wolfsburg supporters were sitting. And if this was not enough to provoke the home fans, he went on to point a finger towards them while sitting on his knees which did not really go down well with a lady fan.
As his goal gave Borussia a 3-1 advantage in the contest, the Wolfsburg fan was undoubtedly not in a happy mood and Haaland’s celebration was enough to drive an angry response from her. She produced a very nasty gesture for the footballer which left the netizens in splits. And despite her wearing the gloves, it was quite evident to viewers that she wasn’t very impressed with Haaland trolling her.

All Hail Haaland!

As it turned out, Haaland’s goal sealed the victory for his side as they secured their 10th league win of the season. After Bayern’s win later in the day took them to the top of the table, Borussia Dortmund ensured that they are just 1 point behind the leaders in the 2nd spot.
