Manchester City’s Erling Haaland has suffered an unexpected injury that has led to his withdrawal from the Norwegian squad ahead of the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
Erling Haaland has been forced to withdraw from the Norwegian squad that would play in the Euro 2024 qualifiers during this international break, and this is a huge concern for the premier league and champions league title chase.
According to reports, Erling Haaland suffered a groin injury which forced him to leave the Norway training camp, and it is, however, uncertain how long the football star will be out for. The injury was confirmed by the head coach of Norway, Ståle Solbakken, in a press conference.
Ståle Solbakken revealed:
Erling took it hard when he realised that he could not fight for the team. Fortunately, there is still plenty of self-confidence, talent and cohesion in this group to win points in the next matches.’
Norway doctor Ola Sand also revealed:
We hoped that this was just an injury that would carry over to Saturday. But after doing tests and examinations yesterday it became clear that he will not make it to the games against Spain and Georgia. It is better that he receives medical follow-up at the club.’
This would be of huge concern to Manchester City as he has been a very integral part of the team. Haaland has netted 42 goals for City in just 37 games and an injury like this raises huge concerns on if City would be able to take on Liverpool following the return of the premier league.
