Haaland was often single-handedly responsible for the Norwegian victories and was also accurate in the last game against Orange. In Norway, the match ended in a 1-1 draw, due in part to Haaland’s goal.
National doctor Ola Sand told Norwegian media that the Borussia Dortmund striker injured his thigh last Tuesday during the Champions League match against Ajax. “This injury will take longer to recover. I have spoken with Dortmund and Erling and we have come to the conclusion that he will not be called up for the Norway national team.”
“It’s time to focus on my injury,” Halland said on social media. “I will come back stronger.” He came back last week after a muscle injury that kept him on the sidelines for about three weeks. With the Norwegian on the entire pitch, Dortmund lost 4-0 to Ajax at the Johan Cruyff Arena last Tuesday. Haaland will also miss the rematch against Ajax on November 3.
The Netherlands and Norway will play each other on November 16. The winner of the match is likely to qualify directly for next year’s World Cup in Qatar, although both countries will play another match first. Orange will play Montenegro on November 13, Norway still has to play Latvia.
