Erling Haaland has suffered a groin injury and will not be available for the upcoming international break. The Norwegian footballer had traveled with the national team for their matches against Georgia and Spain but had to leave early after undergoing medical tests. Haaland sustained the injury during the Burnley game and was in pain throughout the match. Initially, the discomfort seemed minor and it was expected that he would join his national team, but the decision was made not to take any risks with a potentially more serious injury.
As a result of this incident, Haaland will not be playing against Spain and Georgia. Norway will be facing ‘La Roja’ in La Rosaleda (Málaga) and the Georgian national team in Batumi. Solbakken’s men are starting the qualification phase for the Euro 2024 tournament, which they have not participated in since the year 2000, when they were eliminated in the group stages alongside Spain, Slovenia, and the former Yugoslavia.
