4-0: Haaland sinks Romania with a hat trick

The connection between midfielder Martin Odegaard and hat trick striker Erling Haaland propelled Norway, which thrashed Romania (4-0) to reach the lead in Group 1 of the Nations League B League.

The Real Madrid midfielder gestured and the Borussia Dortmund striker finished. A guarantee for the Swedish team Lars Laegerback, who did not accuse the setback suffered days ago, when he was out of Euro 2021, beaten by Serbia in the repechage tie.

Norway was not affected by the blow of not going to Euro 2021

At thirteen minutes, a great pass from Odegaard from midfield was taken advantage of by Haaland, who edged out Milan's Romanian goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu on his way out.

Norway extended their lead six minutes before the break, with a play by Birger Meling from the left, a cross to the far post and the completion of Alexander Sorloth, who only had to push the ball into the net.

The 3-0 came in the 64th minute, when Haaland received a ball from Odegaard, who only scored unopposed against the goalkeeper. The Real Madrid midfielder left the pitch shortly after, replaced by Martin Linnes.

Even so, Norway rounded off their triumph with a new goal from the Borussia Dortmund striker, who received a ball from Alexander Sorloth in the crescent, made room to shoot and beat Tatarusanu. The Norwegian coach opted to retire Haaland, who he removed in 78 to introduce Joshua King.

Norway snatched the lead from Romania, who had not lost a game until their visit to the Ulleval Stadion in Oslo. The Norwegian team now leads the Romanian team by two points at the end of the third day.
