Haaland connected with Joao Cancelo’s sumptuous cross from the left as he lifted his left leg in the air to hand his side a 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

It was a fine moment of revenge for the former Dortmund hotshot, who was the subject of chanting, albeit ironic, from the traveling supporters in the first half.

“Not much to shout about from Erling Haaland. He worked hard, he came deep to try and win the ball for City,” Adrian Durham said at half-time in a commentary for talkSPORT.

“Sometimes Dortmund fans would sing words like ‘you’re not very good and you know you are’.” I can’t repeat the actual words they used.

“Obviously, that’s ironic!”

The game also saw Haaland’s former team-mate Jude Bellingham break the record for most goals by an English teenager in the Champions League.

Bellingham headed in Marco Reus’ cross from the left to give the German side a surprise lead.

The 19-year-old now has four Champions League goals, meaning he replaces Wayne Rooney, Phil Foden, Theo Walcott and Jadon Sancho as the record holder for most goals as an English teenager in the competition.

It is also Bellingham’s 18th appearance in the competition. again, the most by any English teenager.

City equalized thanks to a superb long-range effort from John Stones.

And incredibly, just when it looked like Dortmund had found a way to contain Haaland, the Norwegian once again stole the show with his prodigious effort.
