Gary Lineker explains Erling Haaland’s rare qualities that set him apart

Gary Lineker has identified the star qualities that set Erling Haaland apart from other strikers.

Haaland, 19, continued his impressive goalscoring streak for Borussia Dortmund as they inflicted a fifth successive Bundesliga defeat on Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Dan-Axel Zagadou volleyed home Jadon Sancho's corner in the 52nd minute before Haaland swept in at the near post 14 minutes later for his 12th goal in eight games for Dortmund to complete a 2-0 win.

Teenager Haaland has now become the first player in the history of the Bundesliga to score nine goals in his first six matches.

Lineker posted a video a video of the Norwegian's latest strike on social media and explained how Haaland is different to his rivals.

Lineker wrote on Twitter: "Classic example of how to move in the box to create an opportunity to score.

"Feint to go one way then attack a space you think the ball will go.

"More often than not it won’t go where you guess, but when it does you’ve a great chance to score. Remarkably few strikers do it well."

Haaland has now netted 12 goals in his eight games in all competitions for Dortmund after joining in the winter break from Salzburg.

Haaland was strongly linked with a move to Manchester United before a potential deal fell through, handing a blow to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And last week Solskjaer heaped praise on his compatriot.
