Haaland Scored First International Hat-Trick As Norway Beat Romania

Erling Braut Haaland scored his first international hat-trick as Norway cruised to victory against Romania.

Borussia Dortmund’s star striker was in devastating form and put the home side ahead inside 15 minutes.

Norway doubled their lead just before half-time thanks to a tapped-in effort from RB Leipzig’s Alexander Sorloth.

A slotted finish from six yards out and a sublime left-footed effort took Haaland’s tally for Norway to an impressive six goals in six games.

Norway, who lost to Serbia in their Euro 2020 play-off semi-final on Thursday, now sit top of Nations League Group B1 with Northern Ireland their next opponents.

Norway have scored in each of their past 18 matches since a 1-0 Nations League defeat by Bulgaria in September 2018 – their longest scoring streak since a run of 20 games from November 1950 to August 1953.
