Erling Haaland has pulled out of the Norway squad to face Scotland in Sunday’s Euro 2024 qualifier due to an ankle injury.

Norway said the striker is unavailable for the game against Scotland because “he is in so much pain” and his function is “somewhat restricted” although manager Stale Solbakken says it is “not serious”.

Haaland, who will hope to recover for City’s Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday November 25, suffered the problem against Faroe Islands on Thursday.

  1. There's an argument footballers today are forced into playing too many games which has some merit although is it necessary to play a friendly against the faroe island?

  2. Ahh same tricks that corrupt rat fergie used to pull.
    Say players were injured for their national teams then surprise surprise they’d be playing the next league game.

    Dirty wronguns

  3. He did this during an international break last season too and was fit to play in the league days later.

    Shows where his priorities are, which I’m not saying is right or wrong, your nation has no given right to be your main focus, but does go some way to explaining why a national team that currently has what on paper is it’s best crop of players potentially ever still fails to qualify for a major competition.

    Really it’s a smart decision by him and/or Man City to manage his body better than during his time at Dortmund, he had constant injuries then and he’s missed almost no league football since joining City despite playing more club games last season than in any other season of his career.
