Erling Haaland playing for Manchester City

In a setback for Manchester City, Erling Haaland confirmed his absence from Norway’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Scotland due to a painful ankle injury sustained in their match against the Faroe Islands.

Although termed “not serious” by the team doctor, Haaland, who expressed hopes for a speedy recovery, will miss the crucial clash as Norway fights for qualification.

With Norway already falling short in Euro 2024 qualifying, sitting behind Spain and Scotland, Haaland’s focus now shifts to regaining fitness for Manchester City’s pivotal Premier League encounter against Liverpool on November 25. The prolific 23-year-old, having scored 27 goals in 29 caps for Norway, faces a tight timeline for recovery.
Haaland, taking to social media, lamented missing the Scotland clash and emphasized his commitment to swift rehabilitation. As the striker initiates recovery efforts, all eyes are on whether he can make a timely return to feature in the high-stakes City-Liverpool showdown, a match eagerly anticipated by football enthusiasts.
