Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has been in phenomenal form since his rise at Red Bull Salzburg. The Norwegian international, who secured a move to Dortmund in January 2020, has started to prove himself in a new league altogether. Haaland has now created history by scoring 5 goals for the Bundesliga side in just 2 games.

Borussia Dortmund bettered FC Koln on Matchday 19, scoring five past their opponents. Dortmund’s most recent signing Erling Haaland scored twice to secure 3 points for his side. However, the thing that made him stand out against other scorers is that he was introduced into the game as a substitute only in the 65th minute, when he replaced Thorgan Hazard.
Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus was in awe of his player, lauding his performance as ‘wonderful’. Reus also had a phenomenal game, scoring once while also assisting Haaland’s opening goal. Besides being the first player to score five goals in two Bundesliga appearances, Haaland also became the second-youngest player to score a hat-trick in the league. He is also the first substitute debutant to strike thrice in a game.
