Fans say Haaland will be benched for Alvarez at Man City after shocking miss

Football fans have had their say after watching newly signed Manchester City striker Erling Haaland miss a "sitter".

Haaland's homeland Norway took on Serbia away at the Red Star Stadium in the Nations League on Thursday and fans were gobsmacked when they saw the striker, often compared to a robot, miss what was seen to some as a "sitter". Just 17 minutes into the match the forward was played through after a knock-on.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker took the ball down with little pressure but couldn't bury the chance with his weaker right foot. Fans went mental as they jumped on the chance to lay into the £51m player.

A clip of the miss was shared on Reddit, with ramithrower replying: "Joining city automatically gives you the miss sitters trait." Another person replied claiming the striker could lose his place to Argentinian forward Julian Alvarez who is set to join up with the Manchester club this summer as well.

Xehanz wrote: "He is going to get benched by Alvarez at this rate. At least he won't be a 100M flop." TheLimeyLemmon joked: "Oh my god he’s left his boots in Dortmund."

Although some people saw the post itself as a compliment for the striker, with him being so good he gets a post for missing a shot in a game where he scored the winner. Beautifulbozo wrote: "You know you’re good when a miss like this warrants a post."

The game eventually finished with a 1-0 to Norway with the Leeds born 21-year-old scoring the first-half winner as Norway won their opening Nations League match of the campaign.
