Of course, he would prefer to fight for the World Cup crown himself, but that will not be possible in 2022: Erling Haaland reveals which nations he thinks have the best chances of winning the title.
Haaland is one of the big players who cannot take part in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Not because of injury, however, but because the goalscorer and his native Norway failed to secure a ticket to the Middle East.
However, the former Dortmunder still has an eye on the big event and his favorites, of which he counts four, as he reveals in an interview with the BBC.
"I can't just name one favorite because there are too many good teams. I would say Brazil, Argentina, France and maybe England," said Haaland about the hottest title contenders.
"Obviously I would have liked to play in the World Cup but I won't be able to. I'll use the time to rest instead and I'll train. I'll prepare for the rest of the season so I can prepare for that next game after the break," added Haaland, who has already scored 21 goals in 23 caps for his country and enjoyed a record-breaking first half of the season at Manchester City.
