“When you have hungry players around you, it’s easy to play with them, as they want the same as you. We want to score all the time and achieve something.”

Haaland’s playing style has drawn comparisons with Swedish icon Zlatan Imbrahimovic, someone the Norwegian is keen to emulate.

“I had a lot of role models and I have seen many good players, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the biggest one for me — how he became so good, the path he took, the way he plays,” Haaland said.

“Also, he is Scandinavian, so someone has to take over from him.”
