Erling Haaland scored two goals as Norway beat Sweden in their Nations League Group B4 game on Sunday.

The new Manchester City striker headed home after 10 minutes to give Norway the lead before netting his second early in the second half to double Norway’s lead from the spot.

Haaland has now scored 20 goals in 21 games and at 21 is only 14 goals away from being the top men’s scorer in Norway’s history.

Norway top of group

Haaland was also the provider for Norway’s third as RB Leipzig striker Alexander Sorloth made it 3-1.

Emil Forsberg scored for Sweden to make it 2-1 with a shot into the top corner and Viktor Gyokeres scored in the 95th minute but it was too little, too late.

As things stand, Norway are top of the group, with 10 points from their opening four games.

Sweden have only picked up three points from their four games to date.
