Man City ace Haaland: I wish I was in Qatar

Manchester City forward Erling Haaland admits that he wishes he was at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with Norway.

However, his nation did not qualify for the tournament, which means Haaland has a break from competitive action until the English domestic calendar resumes in late-December.

The 22-year-old spoke about the World Cup in a reactions challenge video with team-mates John Stones and Stefan Ortega.

Haaland said: “First of all, I wish I was playing in the World Cup of course.

“But, that’s reality now. I don’t do.”

He added: “I will relax my body and my mind a lot and then I will train. What I will train on? Nothing special.

“I think, it’s been going quite well I think, my first months in City so I don’t need to do so much things, or so many changes to be honest.

“So yeah, it’s about preparing myself for the next half of the season and being ready when the next game kicks in after the break.”
