Haaland Debut At City With Goals

New signing Erling Haaland scored on his debut as Manchester City beat Bayern Munich in a match twice held up by a lightning storm in Wisconsin on Saturday night.

Haaland, who joined City for £51.2m from Borussia Dortmund, scored after 12 minutes in the pre-season friendly.

BBC reported that the 22-year-old missed the first match of City’s US tour, against Mexico’s Club America, with injury niggles.

And City boss Pep Guardiola said the forward “needs time”.

Haaland’s goal came from a whipped cross from man of the match Jack Grealish, with the Norway international finishing from close range.

Guardiola said: “He scored a goal which is important, these types of goals in front of the keeper – always he’s there.

“We’ll see how he reacts to the niggles that he had in the previous weeks.

“After we come back we have long weeks to prepare every weekend game. In those two or three weeks, we will get the best form.”
