Haaland scores 20-minute hat-trick on Dortmund debut

Agency, 19 January : Erling Haaland scored a 20-minute hat-trick on his Borussia Dortmund debut after signing from Red Bull Salzburg for around €20m (£17m).

The 19-year-old joined Dortmund for £17.1m last month, after netting 28 goals in 22 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg this season – a tally that included five hat-tricks.

He made that six courtesy of the perfect introduction to his new club and league.

Having come off the bench on 56 minutes, with Dortmund trailing 3-1, he scored just three minutes later, before England winger Jadon Sancho levelled the match at 3-3.

Haaland then put Dortmund ahead for the first time with 18 minutes left when he tapped home after Thorgan Hazard got in behind the Augsburg defence and completed his treble when captain Marco Reus played him into the area, slamming the ball home to make it 5-3.
