Erling Haaland: Borussia Dortmund couldn't stop me

Erling Haaland has praised Borussia Dortmund for how they defended against Manchester City, but was keen to point out that they still couldn't find a way to stop him.

Man City struggled to break the Bundesliga side down in what was an eventual 2-1 Champions League win on Wednesday, not having a single shot on target until John Stones' 80th minute effort.

That shot on target was also their first goal, and their second one was the winner, with Haaland volleying his team to victory.

The Norwegian praised the way his former team played and defended but issued a reminder that it wasn't enough to stop him.

When told by an interview on BT Sport that BVB 'clearly know how to stop you', Haaland replied: "They didn't stop me, I scored!

"But yeah, they played well and they were good, and I was quite sure I was going to be followed all game because they know me very well.

"Dortmund were really good today, and in the end, the three points is what matters."

Haaland's goal was one of the best he's scored, with the striker lifting his leg extremely high to turn in a stunning cross from Joao Cancelo.

The team's first one wasn't bad either, with Stones firing in from outside the box, but Haaland joked that his was the better of the two.

"Yeah, two wonderful goals today. I think mine was a bit better, honestly," he added.

The 22-year-old now has just one goal less than Luis Suarez in the Champions League and only four fewer than Wayne Rooney.
