Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland has been criticised for “surrendering” on Norway after their heavy defeat to Turkey.
Haaland’s country were thrashed 3-0 in Malaga in Saturday’s World Cup qualifier following a brace by Ozan Tufan and a finish by Leicester star Caglar Soyuncu.
Norway received some heavy criticism from the press, who dubbed the game “a disaster”, and the Dortmund star took a heavy beating following a poor display for his country.
Liverpool and Norway legend John Arne Riise felt like the star striker lacked the same passion he shows at the Westfalenstadion.
Riise told VG: “”He has received so much praise for showing his emotion when things aren’t going well with Dortmund, but we don’t see any of that back here.”
Retired Norwegian striker Bernt Hulsker was especially critical after Haaland’s “disappointing” performance.
He said: “He doesn’t play with the same confidence that we’re used to from him. In Dortmund he hits himself in the face if he misses such a pass.
“Here it was just surrender. I’m not saying he’s disinterested, but he exudes it. “
