Erling Braut Haaland (né Håland, [ˈhòːlɑn]; born 21 July 2000) is a Norwegian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and the Norway national team. A prolific goalscorer, he is recognized for his pace, athleticism, strength, and precise off-the-ball movement, and he has been considered as one of the best young footballers in the world.
Haaland started his career at his hometown club Bryne FK in 2016 and moved to Molde FK the next year where he spent two years, before signing with Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg in January 2019. At Salzburg, he won the Austrian Bundesliga and Austrian Cup.
In the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League, he became the first teenager to score in five consecutive UEFA Champions League matches. In December 2019, Haaland completed a transfer to Borussia Dortmund for a fee reported to be in the region of €20 million. He carried on his goalscoring success in the 2019–20 Champions League campaign, becoming the second teenager to score 10 goals in the competition, and won the 2020 Golden Boy award.
After the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, in which he won the Golden Boot where he scored nine goals in a match, another record, Haaland made his debut for the Norway senior team in September 2019.
Haaland was born in Leeds, England, as his father Alf-Inge Håland was playing for Leeds United in the Premier League at the time. In 2004 at the age of three, he moved to Bryne, Norway, his parents’ hometown.
Haaland started in the academy of his hometown club Bryne FK at the age of five. In an interview with Goal.com, Haaland’s former youth coach, Alf Ingve Berntsen, talked about his early talent:
I saw Erling for the first time when he was five when he joined indoor training with a group one year older … His first two touches led to goals. He was very, very good from the first moment, even though he hadn’t played in the club before. He started playing in his own year group, but because he was so much better than the others, we immediately pulled him up to Under-6.
During the 2015–16 seasons, Haaland played for the reserve team Bryne 2 where he impressed, scoring 18 goals in 14 matches. In May 2016, Gaute Larsen was sacked as Bryne manager and youth coach Berntsen was promoted to caretaker boss. Having worked closely with him in different youth teams, the interim manager handed Haaland his first start despite the forward being just 15 years old, three months before turning 16. His debut was a second-tier 1. division match against Ranheim on 12 May 2016.
After having initially deployed Haaland as a winger, Berntsen put him in his favored central role as a striker after a few matches. Although he failed to score in his breakthrough season at Bryne, Haaland was offered a trial by German club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim before finally moving to Molde FK to play under Ole Gunnar Solskjær. Haaland made 16 appearances for Bryne.
Red Bull Salzburg
On 19 August 2018, the Austrian Bundesliga club Red Bull Salzburg announced that Haaland would join the club on 1 January 2019, signing a five-year contract. On 19 July 2019, Haaland scored his first hat-trick for the club in a 7–1 Austrian Cup win against SC-ESV Parndorf and followed it on 10 August with his first Austrian Bundesliga hat-trick in a 5–2 win against Wolfsberger AC. Haaland scored his third hat-trick for Red Bull Salzburg on 14 September, in a 7–2 victory over TSV Hartberg, taking his seasonal record to 11 league goals in seven appearances, and three days later, he got another hat-trick in his 2019–20 UEFA Champions League debut against Genk in a 6–2 victory, his fourth overall for the club.
Haaland then went on to become only the second teenager in UEFA Champions League history to score in each of his first three appearances in the competition, after Karim Benzema, with a goal against Liverpool and two against Napoli; his six goals set a new record for the most goals by a player in his first three appearances in the Champions League. Later on, he scored a goal against Napoli to be the first teenager to score in his first four matches in the competition, and the fourth player of any age to achieve that feat, following Zé Carlos, Alessandro Del Piero, and Diego Costa. On 27 November, he scored another goal against Genk to reach five consecutive matches and joined Del Piero, Serhiy Rebrov, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Robert Lewandowski in doing so.
Haaland completed his transfer to German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund a couple of days before the January 2020 winter transfer opened for a fee reported to be in the region of €20 million, signing a four-and-a-half-year contract.
He made his debut against Augsburg on 18 January 2020, coming on as a substitute in the 56th minute, and scoring a hat-trick within 23 minutes in a 5–3 win. He became the second player in Dortmund history to score three goals in their Bundesliga debut, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. During his second appearance for Dortmund, played on 24 January against local rivals 1. FC Köln, Haaland came on once again as a substitute, in the 65th minute. He scored 12 minutes later, before scoring a second after 10 minutes, helping his team win 5–1. Haaland became the first Bundesliga player to score five goals in his opening two matches, as well as the fastest player to reach that tally (56 minutes). On 18 February 2020, Haaland scored both goals in a 2–1 home victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16. The Norwegian teenager tallied ten Champions League goals in just his first eight appearances in the 2019–20 campaign, eight goals for Salzburg, and two goals for Dortmund.
Following the Bundesliga’s return during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Haaland scored the first goal since German football was halted in late March, scoring in a 4–0 win over Schalke 04 on 16 May. It was his 10th goal in the Bundesliga campaign. On 20 June 2020, Haaland scored twice in a 2–0 win against RB Leipzig to secure Champions League football for Dortmund in the following season.
On 19 September 2020, Haaland scored a brace in a 3–0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach, in Dortmund’s first match of the season. He scored his side’s equalizer in their 2–3 Der Klassiker defeat to Bayern Munich in the DFL-Supercup on 30 September and again found the net against Bayern when the sides met in the league on 7 November, with Dortmund losing 2–3 once more. On 21 November, Haaland scored four goals in 32 minutes, in a 5–2 away win over Hertha BSC. These five goals in the month of November saw Haaland crowned the Bundesliga Player of the Month for a second time. He scored a brace in a 3–0 win over Club Brugge on 24 November, becoming the fastest player to reach 15 (and then 16) UEFA Champions League goals, with only 12 appearances in the competition. Hours before a Champions League group stage match against Lazio on 2 December, Borussia Dortmund announced that Haaland had suffered a hamstring injury, which would keep him out of action until January 2021.
Haaland made his return to the side in their match against VfL Wolfsburg on 3 January 2021. He scored a brace away against RB Leipzig in a 3–1 win on 9 January and got another two goals in Dortmund’s 2–4 defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach on 22 January. On 17 February, Haaland scored two goals and recorded an assist in Dortmund’s 3–2 away victory against Sevilla in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16, bring his overall tally in the competition to 18 goals in only 13 appearances.
Although also eligible to play for England, Haaland chose Norway and has represented them at various age groups. With Norway U19, on 27 March 2018, he scored a hat-trick against Scotland in a 5–4 victory to help Norway secure their qualification to the 2018 UEFA European Under-19 Championship.
On 22 July 2018, Haaland scored for Norway U19 in a 1–1 draw against Italy in the 2018 UEFA European Under-19 Championship.
On 30 May 2019, Haaland scored nine goals in Norway U20’s 12–0 win against Honduras U20 at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Lublin, Poland. This was Norway U20’s biggest ever win and Honduras U20’s heaviest ever defeat. This also set a new U-20 World Cup record for most goals scored by a single player in a match, and also the biggest win by any team in the history of the tournament. Despite the Norwegians being eliminated in the group stage, and Haaland not scoring in any other matches in the tournament, he won its Golden Boot.
After the impressive performance in the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, a good run of form with Red Bull Salzburg and scoring six goals in the first four matches of the 2019–20 Austrian Bundesliga, on 28 August 2019, Haaland was named by manager Lars Lagerbäck in the Norway senior team squad to face Malta and Sweden in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying matches and made his debut on 5 September 2019 against Malta. On 4 September 2020, Haaland scored his first international goal for Norway in a 1–2 loss against Austria in the 2020–21 UEFA Nations League B. On 7 September 2020, he scored a brace in a match against Northern Ireland.
On 11 October 2020, Haaland scored his first international hat-trick, in Norway’s 4–0 win against Romania in 2020–21 UEFA Nations League B.
Style of play
Recognized for his explosive acceleration and pace, athleticism, positioning, strength, and precise off-the-ball movement, Haaland’s runs in behind defenders often see him in ideal positions to score. Haaland is also quick to recognize when an opponent is preoccupied or caught ball watching, leading him to pounce when a gap opens between defenders to offer a great option for his teammates. During his short career, Haaland has established himself as a versatile goalscorer, with him being able to score through powerful long-range shots, well-placed finishes, composed finishes during a one-on-one with the goalkeeper, headers, and dinks.
A team player, Haaland is also an instinctive and quick reading of the play, which contributes to his quick leaps to go with his large body frame in helping him win second balls or flick long passes onto runners in behind. During his time at Dortmund, his strategic pinning and drawing of markers away from space for others to use has provided players like Jadon Sancho, Achraf Hakimi, and Thorgan Hazard with space to run into to either assist or score goals. When Haaland drops deep to link play, he also acts as a good reference point through using his strength to protect the ball to hold off his opponent.
Haaland is able to turn defenders in an instant and drive past them whilst using feints and changing his direction. In addition, rather than give into fouls he often remains balanced and upright when being challenged. He is often recognized for his sprints, reaching a top speed of 36 km/h. His precise timing of runs allows him to burst ahead to perfect locations unimpeded, and his sharp movements—including zigzag, double movements, and stop-go—make him more elusive for his markers. This has been specifically beneficial when he is inside the box, as he is given the opportunity to get goal-side, attack the back post or peel off his man to occupy dangerous areas for cutbacks.
Haaland has been influenced by Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Ole Gunnar Solskjær and Michu.
Haaland is the son of the Norwegian former Nottingham Forest, Leeds United, and Manchester City defender Alf-Inge Håland, and of the former women’s heptathlon athlete Gry Marita Braut. In February 2017, in an interview with Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten, Haaland stated that “The dream is to win the Premier League with Leeds.”He moved to Bryne in Norway with his family at the age of three. In 2016 the music video for “Kygo Yo” was uploaded to YouTube by Flow Kingz, a group consisting of Haaland and his Norway U18 teammates Erik Botheim and Erik Tobias Sandberg. The video had by 2020 surpassed 5 million views and 150,000 likes.
