The Norwegian coach was knocked out as FIFA named the best team of the year in the world. In the top flight he has a place along with Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo.
– I am very happy. There are a lot of good players and there is free motivation to carry on. I also want to thank my teammates for making this possible. Football is a team sport, Haaland said after the venue was secured.
Arsene Wenger is in place to announce the eleven players who are in the team. He was curious about the Norwegian’s goal form.
– Have you always, from a young age, had a burning desire to score goals, asks Wenger.
– Yes, all my life I loved watching people score goals. It’s nice to see another goal scored, and even better to score one’s own. “It’s a very good feeling,” said Haaland, before Wenger made a statement.
– You are in good company. Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski. Fantastic, the Frenchman insisted, and got an answer from Haaland.
Lewandowski Player of the Year
No Norwegian male player has ever joined the team. Thus, Haaland wrote history. The award is given after a vote of football players around the world.
This season’s FIFA best students look like this:
Gianluigi Donnarumma – David Alaba, Leonardo Bonucci, Rúben Dias – Kevin De Bruyne, Jorginho, N’Golo Kanté – Cristiano Ronaldo, Erling Braut Haaland, Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi.
Haaland’s main rival in Germany, Robert Lewandowski, managed to top the selection for the world’s best male soccer player. He won over Lionel Messi and Mohamed Salah. In the women’s team, Barcelona’s Alexia Putellas was named the world’s best player. Caroline Graham Hansen has no place on the team this year.
