Haaland: I’m tired of hearing my name in the media every day

Erling Haaland has admitted that he feels a bit of pressure ahead of the match against Spain this weekend as part of the EURO 2024 qualifiers.

Spain have arrived in the city of Oslo or their crucial EURO 2024 qualifier following a 2-0 midweek win over Scotland.

Both teams are trying to secure a place in Germany next summer with Scotland needing just two more points to take one of the top two spots in Group A.

Haaland scored twice in Norway’s 4-0 away win over Cyprus, but the Manchester City striker was forced to comment on the fact that his name is mentioned in the media on an almost daily basis.

After the match, security guards were on hand to ensure Haaland had no problems as he walked off the field amid a throng of fans seeking photos and autographs.

“I’m starting to get a little tired of hearing my name, but that’s how it is. I can’t do anything about it,” Haaland said briefly.

After the two goals scored against Cyprus, Haaland has reached the figure of 27 goals with Norway, as many as there are appearances.


The 23-year-old missed the first challenge against Spain in March, which Norway lost 3-0 due to injury.
