Erling Braut Haaland said on Monday he will miss Norway’s upcoming World Cup qualifier with his club Borussia Dortmund due to a foot injury. The 21-year-old striker has missed the German side’s last three matches with the issue and will also be sidelined for international fixtures in Turkey on Friday and in Montenegro on Monday. “Hello guys, sorry for not being ready for the national matches. I was looking forward to it. Anyway, good luck to Norway,” Haaland tweeted.

Norway’s team doctor Ola Sand said Haaland’s return was a precautionary measure.

“The injury appears to have subsided, but unfortunately its development was very slow,” he said in a statement from the Norwegian Football Federation.

“There’s also a risk of complications if he returns too early.”

Norway, which is second only to the Netherlands in goal difference in their qualifying group for the 2022 World Cup, will also be without forwards Alexander Sorloth and Joshua King.
