Haaland Speaks Of Scoring More Champions League Goals In Paris

Erling Haaland insists he is ready to score more goals in the Champions League after his brace earned Borussia Dortmund a 2-1 advantage over Paris Saint-Germain.

Lucien Favre’s side have a first-leg lead thanks to the 19-year-old’s double either side of Neymar’s equaliser, with his second a stunning, powerful drive from outside of the area.

The Norwegian superstar played down any realisation of just how good he is and can be, while revealing he almost blanked out following his winner in order to soak up the moment.

“I know I have a lot to improve and you saw that today, I have to keep working hard,” Haaland told DAZN.

 “We have to keep going, I want to reach far in this competition, work hard and keep going.

“I didn’t think too much, I enjoyed the moment, these nights you live for.

“It’s fantastic. We let in a goal that we should have kept out, but that’s how it is.

 “We have to improve but we’ll see what happens in the next Champions League.

“We have to see how many goals I’ll score in Paris, let’s see.”
