Manchester City Erling Haaland scored on his debut for Man City in just 11 minutes against Bayern Munich on a night when Lambeau Field’s first-ever soccer game was postponed due to dramatic thunderstorms.
Erling Haaland made a sudden, unexpected entrance at Manchester City.
On a night when Lambeau Field’s first-ever “soccer” game was postponed due to magnificent thunderstorms, Haaland needed just 11 minutes of his debut to score.
After Haaland was struck by lightning, play was postponed for another hour as the weather continued to be terrible.
After being located by Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish deftly created some space for himself on the left.
Haaland then crossed low, beating Manuel Neuer with a deft finish by sliding in from the right.
Haaland had previously scored when playing Bayern. Borussia Dortmund actually lost all seven games, but they did do so six times in those contests.
This goal was sufficient to guarantee victory.
In a game that was shortened to 80 minutes, the Norwegian felt he had scored again just before halftime, but an offside flag was raised after he had put an emphatic finish on Bernardo Silva’s cushioned effort.
At the interval, Julian Alvarez took over for Haaland, but the sell-out audience of 78, 217 had already witnessed what they had come for.
ERLING HAALAND Strikes like lightning in verse one.
Although the start of the game was delayed due to storm warnings, City’s new £51 million striker didn’t take long to start the floodgates.
Haaland scored his first City goal in just 11 minutes.
Haaland had only made a few initial touches, but when Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne combined on the left and the England midfielder fired over a mouthwatering low cross, Haaland was there to scoop it up from close range.
Although it wasn’t nearly a thunderbolt, the teams were once more removed off the field as more lightning and thunder appeared.
JACK GREALISH SEEMS TO BE HOT
The $100 million man for City acknowledged that last season was more difficult than anticipated and that he needs to improve.
Grealish has performed admirably in both of the champions’ preseason friendly against American opponents, and he seems to be perfectly suited for a position wide on the left side of midfield.
The England star was at the center of most of City’s greatest effort and assisted Haaland in scoring his first goal.
Grealish is having a good season this year. He appears to be prepared for it.
City continues to seem to be the team to beat.
The team led by Guardiola has a history of sluggish starts.
However, the City manager made a recent allusion to his team’s 100-point season, and it is obvious that he wants them to start strong for a season that will be interrupted by the World Cup.
City already resembles the nimble, nimble-passing juggernaut that has captured four of the previous five Premier League championships.
Haaland needed just 11 minutes to establish his place in the team, indicating that the Blues seem to be getting better.
