Haaland equals Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible record

Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland has equalled Al-Nassr captain Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible record from the 2007-2008 season after leading his team to win the UEFA Champions League final over the weekend.

Haaland featured as Man City defeated Inter Milan 1-0 in the Champions League final on June 10 in Turkey.

The Norway international did not score in the final but ended the competition with 12 goals from 11 appearances, winning the Golden Boot in the process.

The win means the 22-year-old has ended the season with the Premier League and UEFA Champions League titles – winning the Golden Boot in both competitions.

Haaland was also named the Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers Association (FWA).

This particular feat has only been achieved once before by Ronaldo during the 2007-2008 season for Manchester United, as per AS.

Ronaldo scored 31 goals in the league and eight in the Champions League during that campaign.

Haaland, meanwhile, has netted 36 goals in 35 league games for Manchester City – a Premier League record.
