On success with his country he added: ‘Norway is a small, small nation, 5.5 million, I think less.

‘So we’re not a big nation. But again you see at the World Cup small nations that do fantastic things.

‘We hope to qualify (in 2026) that’s my biggest goal with them. Hopefully one day I’ll get to play knockout games with Norway.

Haaland’s famous goal celebration led to a lot of imitators including from the PSG side

Haaland focuses on the mental side of the game more intently than most. A few years back, he garnered some attention for what has become his signature goal celebration: sliding into a lotus pose and closing his eyes, as if in a meditative trance. 

The celebration led to a wave of imitators including from the Paris Saint-Germain side in a Champions League game.

Haaland speaking about meditation said: ‘I think it’s a really good thing.

‘To relax, to try to not think too much. Because stress is not good for anyone. I hate to be stressed, and I try not to be stressed. But the concept of meditation is to try to let go of these kinds of thoughts. It’s really individual, but for me it’s worked really well.
