Erling Haaland’s Hat-trick in a Debut Match with Dortmund and Breaking Records

By db-admin

DBasia.news –  A beautiful debut was passed by Erling Braut Haaland with Borussia Dortmund. Haaland scored three goals against Augsburg.

Playing at Augsburg headquarters, Saturday (18/01) WIB, the match ended with a total of eight goals and Dortmund won through Julian Brandt (49 ‘), three Haaland goals (59’, 70 ‘and 79’), and Jadon Sancho (61 ‘), who replied to three Augsburg goals: Florian Niederlechner (34’ and 55 ‘) and Marco Richter (46’).

The focus is entirely on Haaland. Just entering in the 56th minute replacing Lukasz Piszczek, former RB Salzburg striker immediately scored three goals from three kick attempts and a total of 10 touches of the ball in the match.

“I came here to score goals. This is a good debut for me. We only have to watch it from one game to another, then we will see what happens,” Haaland told the Bundesliga official website.

“If you see this support, then you can see the reason. It is amazing to be able to play in front of fans and this gives you more pleasure to play football in front of such enthusiastic fans.”

A number of records were also set by the striker who was recruited this January (the winter transfer market) for 20 million euros. The first record is for the youngest hat-trick scorer at the age of 19 years old, then the next record is for the debutant who incised three goals in the division when entering from the bench.

Not stopping there, his three goals also became Haaland’s sixth hat-trick of the season from accumulation with Salzburg and Dortmund. Haaland became the seventh player in Bundesliga history to score a hat-trick in his debut match.

Erling Haaland became the first player to do so again since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in August 2013. Interestingly, Aubameyang, former Dortmund striker also wore the jersey number 17 and faced the same opponent.

There is still a long way to go for Haaland to emulate the success of his two predecessors, Robert Lewandowski and Aubameyang, in Dortmund. However, the road to success is wide open if he consistently maintains his performance and Dortmund has quality players.

“This is good, rightfully so. It’s only been a few weeks since I arrived and it’s special to go to a new club, but it’s crazy how I feel that I’m part of the team. The atmosphere inside the team is great,” Haaland added.

“When my father and I decided on this club, we saw all the players who could help me (score). And you can see that today, there are extreme qualities in this side. After only a few minutes on the pitch I received a perfect pass from Jadon and then there are people like (Thorgan) Hazard and (Marco) Reus, who are great players. “

“Everyone here is talented. This works well today and it is the coach who decides how we should play. It depends on us to perform well (or not) on the pitch. And you can see that connections to other players are already there. With talented players who play at such a high level, “explained Haaland.
