Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, vented his frustration on social media yesterday night after Norway’s defeat by Spain in their Euro 2024 qualifying match.
On Sunday, the 23-year-old started first for his nation.
But against La Roja, he and his colleagues put up a dismal performance.
With the game’s lone goal from Gavi, Spain guaranteed their spot at Euro 2024.
In order to maintain their chances of qualifying, Norway needed to win.
Now that Scotland finished second in the group and qualified for the finals, Norway can only advance via the Nations League play-offs.
Erling Haaland sends a message following yet another unsuccessful Norway night
Last week, Haaland scored twice against Cyprus, and Norway defeated them 4-0.
But they struggled against much more formidable resistance.
While Spain controlled the ball, Norway really failed to pose a danger.
Haaland was described as ‘obviously frustrated’ by the local media outlet Nettavisen, which gave him a 5/10 grade for his performance.
Haaland has noticed it happening frequently lately, and the striker last night posted on social media to express his dissatisfaction.
It’s time to think back, fix what went wrong, and make sure we’re better prepared for difficulties in the future, he wrote. We appreciate everyone’s support last night.
A challenging time for Haaland
Therefore, Haaland has experienced defeat once more.
He will have momentarily relished scoring twice against Cyprus and winning the match. But it was widely anticipated that Norway would easily defeat them.
The big man will undoubtedly be upset over the loss to Spain.
Neither will City’s losses to Wolves, Newcastle United, and Arsenal.
Haaland, who has a remarkable attitude, will do every effort to resume his winning and goal-scoring ways.
