Erling Haaland Injured During International Play
Erling Haaland was subbed off at the half during Norway’s 9-0 throttling of Armenia in an international friendly, following what appeared to be a fairly painful ankle injury. I’m not going to embed it because it looks pretty nasty, but if you haven’t eaten today, you can see it here.
Armenia’s players clearly didn’t take the term “friendly” to heart, as they repeatedly targeted Haaland with dangerous tackles. Haaland was able to play and even score a goal after the tackle I linked to above, but he was subbed off after 45’ for “precautionary reasons.” Hopefully this won’t put him out for long.
