Erling Haaland celebrated winning the 2020 Golden Boy award by absolutely decimating Hertha Berlin at the Olympiastadion last night.
The Norwegian scored 4 goals in 32 minutes in the second half as Borussia Dortmund won 5-2 against Die Alte Dame.
What was even more amazing, was that the 20-year-old looked unhappy when he was substituted 5 minutes from full-time.
Borussia Dortmund are now just one point behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga points table after coming back from a goal down to demolish Hertha Berlin in the second half.
Lucian Favre’s side were pegged back after Matheus Cunha let one rip from distance to stun the away side in the 33rd minute.
Things changed drastically after half-time as Erling Braut Haaland made his presence felt by scoring two goals in the 47th and 49th minute.
The Golden Boy winner was relentless on the night as he capitalised on a mistake from Hertha and rounded off the keeper to complete his hat-trick on the 62nd minute mark.
8 minutes later, Raphael Guerreiro piled on the misery for the home side as he scored his first goal of the season.
Haaland took his tally to 4 for the night, just a few minutes after Cunha had added a second for Hertha Berlin.
You would think that Haaland would take it easy when teenager Youssoufa Moukoko replaced him late in the game, but nothing of that sort was visible as the Norwegian striker looked pissed off at Lucian Favre for making him go off the ground –
Being the cyborg that he is, it might not be easy to conclude how angry he was at the substitution from the above imagery, so here is a quote from Haaland himself after the game –
“After the game, he [coach Lucien Favre] asked me, ‘Did you score 3?’. I said, ‘No only 4 because you subbed me out. So I’m a bit mad at him right now. But that’s how it is.”
