Erling Haaland Withdraws from Norway National team squad with injury


Erling Haaland has been forced to withdraw from Norway’s squad for their upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers with a groin injury, the Norwegian FA has confirmed.

Haaland is said to have felt pain in his groin after scoring a hat-trick in Manchester City’s FA Cup win over Burnley on Saturday.

The 22-year-old joined the national team as scheduled but was sent back to his club after tests on Monday.

He will therefore miss the qualifiers with Spain and Georgia and will hope to be fit in time for Manchester City’s Premier League clash with Liverpool on April 1.
