Nobody Will Be Able To Explain How Erling Haaland Missed From Six Yards Out vs Liverpool, as Pep Guardiola’s side lost the game.
In Manchester City’s 3-1 Community Shield loss to Liverpool, Erling Haaland blew a wonderful opportunity, and he was upset in himself.
On Saturday night at the King Power Stadium’s traditional season opener, the 22-year-old struggled.
Late in the game, Haaland did had a fantastic opportunity to make his English football debut, but he utterly botched his lines.
Adrian stopped Phil Fodens’ effort in extra time and returned the ball to danger for Liverpool.
James Milner and Joel Matip were able to separate from Haaland so that he could take a shot with as much force as possible. It was excessive.
The effort of the Norwegian international was met with jeers from every Liverpool supporter present in the stadium.
A few seconds later, cameras captured Haaland covering his face in disgust.
Although Haaland is still considered as one of the best forwards in the world, many supporters are skeptical that he would succeed in the Premier League.

“Bundesliga tax has just soared up,” said a tweet.
Another way to say it is: “Might remove him from my FPL because to this.”
“Oh my god, they’ve spent all that money on that?” exclaimed a third.
While someone else remarked: “Haaland’s reputation may already be dust.”
The full-shot back’s was deflected in by City defender Nathan Ake and struck the post before going in.
After a protracted VAR review, City did start to gain control of the game and scored an equalizer through Julian Alvarez.
Darwin Nunez’s header would strike Ruben Dias’ arm, and VAR would be important in preventing a goal that would have given Liverpool the advantage once more.
When requested to watch the incident on the monitor, referee Craig Pawson indicated the location by pointing.
Stepping up, Mohamed Salah calmly blasted his penalty kick past Ederson.
Nunez, who came off the bench to start, provided a beautiful header to secure the win in extra time.
Since moving from Benfica earlier this summer, much has been said about the Uruguayan international’s £85 million price tag, and he had a lackluster preseason.
However, manager Jurgen Klopp has supported his new striker, and it has paid off, as Reds supporters have been chanting his name the entire time.
Liverpool hasn’t won the Community Shield since 2006, and City has now dropped the last two.
