Erling Haaland will miss Norway’s October fixtures as he has not fully recovered from a thigh injury that has sidelined him for Borussia Dortmund in recent weeks.

Haaland made an electric start to the season prior to picking up the knock, registering seven goals and four assists in just five Bundesliga games.

However, he has not featured in any of his side’s last three matches, missing league outings against Augsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach, as well as a Champions League victory over Sporting CP.

Due to this, there had been major doubts over his availability for Norway’s matches against Turkey, Montenegro and Latvia this month with club manager Marco Rose revealing that the player had still been struggling to walk over the weekend.

“Erling has been trying to play for days now… He told me, ‘I would love to play, but I can’t move the way I want to. I can’t even walk,” Rose said.
