Haaland goes for the Ballon d’Or

The match was raised after the expected: Inter in the cave, City loading the favorite plate. Rodrigo, who scored the only goal of the game after 67 minutesdefined the procedure with an accurate phrase: “I was horrible, I was dead, but I scored the goal in the final”.

And Haaland? He didn’t play for 8 points. He was missing, but it is also true that, faced with such a threat, the Inter coach locked him up, surrounding him with Acerbi, Brozovich, Çalhanoğlu and Barella. He was not drowned, but the paths were cut well to receive goal passes from his best partner, kevin debruyne.

Despite the awkwardness of their game, the duo managed to find spaces and Haaland he was able to land a left-footed shot at 27′, but the goalkeeper Onana from Inter, well placed, stopped the shot. Ten minutes later Kevin was subbed off due to injury and the Norwegian was left alone up top, fighting against one of the toughest defenses in Europe. His frustration was already noticeable at the end of the match, when they were taking care of the victory, and he earned his first yellow card for a brush with the goalkeeper of the Italian team. Then, like all the citizens, he dedicated himself to defending himself from the blue and black avalanche that was stalking them. But the title already had an owner.

The world -which does not stop- is waiting for the successor. Someone to get up early for on weekends. Someone to admire.
