Erling Haaland grabs the headlines in dream Dortmund debut as teenager nets hat-trick off bench vs Augsburg


The internet is abuzz this evening with widespread chatter surrounding the incredible debut enjoyed by Erling Braut Haaland in Borussia Dortmund’s comeback win over Augsburg.

Haaland steals the show

Lucien Favre’s men travelled to the Augsburg Arena a short time ago, for a Bundesliga clash.

BVB headed into proceedings hoping to get their league campaign back on track, having struggled in the buildup to the winter break.

However, things could not have gotten off to a much worse start for Dortmund this afternoon.

With 55 minutes on the clock, the German giants found themselves 2 goals down, and staring a 3rd-consecutive winless league outing in the face.

Queue the introduction of Erling Braut Haaland.

The future of Norwegian hitman Haaland had proven one of the talking points of the first-half of the European season, after the teen set both the Austrian top-flight and Champions League alight with his goalscoring exploits.

In the end, though, it was Dortmund who beat out all competition to secure Haaland’s signature late last month.

And to say that the former RB Salzburg man went on to prove his new employers correct in pushing so hard for his signature this afternoon would be putting it lightly.

With just under an hour on the clock, and Dortmund 3-1 down, Haaland was introduced off the bench by Lucien Favre.

And, incredibly, within 23 minutes of stepping onto the pitch, the youngster had bagged himself a hat-trick, to lead BVB to a 5-3 win.

Haaland netted in all of the 59th, 70th and 79th minutes, introducing himself to German football in the most explosive manner imaginable.
