Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland continued his sensational scoring form with two goals in a 3-0 over Club Brugge in Group F of the Champions League.


The 20-year-old, one of the most coveted young players in the game, has now scored 14 Champions League goals in 11 games — no player has scored as many in so few games.

Haaland has now scored more goals in European football’s premier competition than greats such as George Weah, Michael Owen and Christian Vieri.

“It was a good night and three important points,” Haaland told reporters after a win which puts the Bundesliga club top of the group.

Haaland, who joined the German club in January, has scored 26 goals in 28 games in all competitions for his club.
