The Salzburg starlet Haaland set new record as Norway thrash Honduras 12 goals to nothing.
Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling scored nine goals as he and Norway enjoyed a record-breaking day in a 12-0 demolition of Honduras in the Under-20 World Cup in Poland in their final Group C fixture.
The 18-years-old Haaland opened the scoring for his side in the seventh minute and then ended the scoring in the 90th minute by scoring his 9th goal in a single match for Norway by beating the former 6 goals record set by Adailton, who scored six goals for Brazil in 1997.
Norway became the first Country in the U-20 World Cup History to scored 12 goal in a single match by beating Brazil record of 10 goals in a single match.
The 12 goal victory against Honduras set the largest victory in a single match in the tournament history and it took Norway goal difference from +4 to +8,and it increases the odds of their qualification as one of the “best losers” for the round of 16.
