The international from Norway continued his impressive start to life at the Etihad on Wednesday night by defeating Dortmund in the Champions League with a goal in the 84th minute.
Haaland, who cost City £51 million in July when he transferred from the German club, scored an amazing flying volley to give the Premier League champions the victory.

“Dortmund were really good today, but in the end, three points is what matters.”
