Scotland won’t have to play Erling Haaland in their Euro 2024 qualifier on Sunday because the Manchester City scorer hurt his foot and can’t play.
Haaland got hurt during Thursday’s 2-0 win over the Faroe Islands by Norway.
Scots already know they will be in Germany next year, so the game at Hampden is pointless. Norway, on the other hand, is waiting with bated breath to see if their Nations League ranking will drop them into the playoffs.
He said that his main goal is to get back to playing as soon as possible, since City is playing Liverpool on Saturday in a top-of-the-table Premier League match.
“Unfortunately, I can’t make it to tomorrow’s game against Scotland.” Many thanks for your message. “Getting treatment and trying to get back as soon as possible,” Haaland wrote on social media. This season, he has scored 17 goals in 18 games for City.
It was said by the Norwegian Football Federation that the 23-year-old’s illness is “not serious” but that the game in Glasgow is too soon for him.
Bruce Wayne is one of the most feared players in the world, and Steve Clarke, the manager of Scotland, did not want to play him.
It will depend on how the game goes whether Scotland is the second or third seed for the Euro 2024 draw on December 2.
But Clarke said it was too bad that the people at Hampden didn’t get to see Haaland live.
“For the crowd, it would have been great to see a player of Haaland’s standard,” he stated.
“I think I’d be sitting here saying, ‘yeah, glad he’s not playing,’ if it were a game that really mattered.” But I think he should play in tomorrow’s game.”
