Liverpool won the Community Shield this Saturday by beating rival Manchester City (3-1). Erling Haaland did not score and even scored an incredible miss late in the game.
The Raheem Sterling of bad evenings would probably not have denied this gesture. However, we are talking about Erling Haaland, the goal machine. It was today stopped: the Norwegian striker did not find the frame this Saturday, during the Community Shield won by Liverpool against his new team Manchester City (3-1).
In addition to his average or even transparent performance – it must be said that few crosses have arrived on him – the former Dortmund player signed a monumental failure at the end of the game, when the Skyblues were already down 3-1.
Opposite, Nunez scored
On a brilliant inspiration from Bernardo Silva on the right side, Phil Foden is served full axis and hits goalkeeper Adrian, who pushes back badly and directly into Haaland’s feet. Four meters from the goal, slightly off center on the left, the Norwegian tries his luck without control… and hits the crossbar, when the goal was wide open.
A day without for the cyborg, as for his team, beaten by more physically ready Reds. Especially since on the Liverpool side, the rookie in the position of number 9 struck straight away: Darwin Nunez signed the third goal for the winner of the day, after obtaining the penalty transferred by Mohamed Salah a little earlier. First round Nunez and Liverpool.
