Erling Haaland training goal goes viral showing Dortmund star’s incredible power

Erling Haaland has displayed his frightening shot power with a training ground goal that has gone viral – with many joking about the goalkeeper's safety.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a fine start to his second full season with Borussia Dortmund by scoring six goals across five outings ahead of the current International break.

Norway have taken on both Netherlands and Latvia over the past week, drawing and winning those qualifiers with their star forward hitting the target in both.

With spirits high in training before their final fixture of the break against Gibraltar on Tuesday evening, Haaland has been testing out his power in a shooting drill during practise.

In the clip that Haaland shared to his 1.1million followers on Twitter, he can be seen smashing a volley into the roof of the net following a set-up from a coach.

With the keeper rooted to the spot, Haaland turns around to the camera with a huge smile while noises of shock can be heard among his team-mates.

The former Red Bull Salzburg forward will be feeling very confident of adding to his tally of nine international goals in 14 appearances on Tuesday evening.

In their first game of the break, Haaland enjoyed his battle with Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk, and even incidentally broke the defender's finger while scoring the opening goal.

Having said before the encounter: “I do not really fear anyone, I think he is the best defender.

“I think quite a few others in the room agree with me on that. He is fast, strong and ‘bad’ smart, and they are three important things you must have.

“I have played against him twice, I have said that he is the best I have met. He is a good player, so we have to try to play around him.”

And saying after the match: “I think I broke van Dijk’s finger.

“He came up to me and said ‘f****** hell, I think you broke my finger.’

"I have no idea how it happened.”
