Erling Haaland scored a spectacular winner against former side Dortmund as Manchester City came from behind to make it two wins from two.
Two stunning late goals helped Manchester City come from behind to beat Dortmund. After a laboured first half, the visitors took the lead when Jude Bellingham stole in to head in Marco Reus’ driven cross. City struggled to break the resilient visitors down, and it took a fine strike from John Stones from outside the box to level. That set the stage for Haaland’s spectacular winner against the side he departed this summer, converting a no-less stunning cross from Joao Cancelo.
After the match Manchester City’s Erling Haaland said ,”It was good to see everyone [from Dortmund]. They didn’t stop me – I scored. They played well. I was quite sure I was going to be followed the whole game because Edin [Terzić] knows me very well. Three points is what matters.”
“In the end we showed what we are. This is what we are and this is how we have to play. I’m proud of the last 20, 25 minutes. [We scored] two wonderful goals today – mine was a bit better, honestly! It was a nice cross from Cancelo,”Haaland said.
