Haaland struggling to walk as Dortmund star rules himself out of Norway squad – Sporting Life
Erling Haaland will miss Norway’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers through injury as he ‘can’t even walk’.
The 21-year-old is said to be suffering from muscular problems and has missed Borussia Dortmund’s last three games.
Norway were hopeful he could return for them in their games against Turkey and Montenegro, but Haaland revealed on Monday he will not be available.
Confirming he will not be fit, Haaland tweeted: “Hi folks, sorry for not getting ready for the national matches. Had enjoyed myself. Anyway, good luck to Norway.”
Haaland missed Dortmund’s defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach and then also their victories over Sporting Lisbon and Augsburg.

And his club manager Marco Rose explained the situation regarding the Norwegian striker after his side’s 2-1 victory on Saturday.
He said: “All I can tell you is the status quo. Erling has been trying to play for days. Whoever knows him also knows that he always wants to play.
“He didn’t make it to the Champions League. It started in Gladbach and it didn’t work out today. And he told me very opportunely ‘coach I would love to play, but I can’t move the way I want to. I can’t even walk.’
