Erling Haaland continues to set the world alight for Borussia Dortmund

Thanks to a rule change, he was able to feature in the Champions League for Dortmund despite scoring eight goals in six games for Red Bull Salzburg earlier this season.

And je has now scored 11 goals in just seven games for the German club.

Haaland’s two goals helped his team to a 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain to give them the upper hand in their last-16 tie.

But as well as his prowess in front of goal, he is blessed with devastating pace, too.

It was his speed that got people talking on Tuesday when he was clocked running 60 meters in just 6.64 seconds.

That time would have been enough to beat more than 40 other athletes in the heats at the 2018 World Indoor Athletics Championships in the 60m event.

In the final, it would have tied the eighth place finisher while Christian Coleman holds the world record in 6.34 seconds.

Haaland’s run was not from a standing start, though, but came after winning a header in his own boxing. It still demonstrates the incredible pace he has and why he is feared by many defenders around Europe.
