Sport News: Haaland to miss Norway qualifiers

“I can’t play tomorrow. I am injured. I’ll be back soon,” the 21-year-old wrote on Twitter Friday.

Erling Braut Haaland has ruled himself out of Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga match against Augsburg on Saturday and is set to miss Norway’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

The striker, who has scored a staggering 68 goals in 67 appearances for Dortmund since he joined in January 2020, has missed the last two games with a leg knock.

“I can’t play tomorrow. I am injured. I’ll be back soon,” the 21-year-old wrote on Twitter Friday.

Norway play crucial qualifiers against Turkey next Friday and Montenegro on October 11 in their bid to reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

But it appears as though they will have to do without talisman Erling Braut Haaland, who scored five goals in three internationals in September.

Norway are second in Group G, behind the Netherlands on goal difference.

Haaland missed Dortmund’s 1-0 Bundesliga defeat at Borussia Moenchengladbach last Saturday and Tuesday’s Champions League home win against Sporting Lisbon by the same scoreline.
