(Watch Video) “What a terrible performance”: Erling Haaland’s horrible miss in Community Shield causes stir on social media

As if the late double that was conceded to sink their Community Shield hopes wasn’t enough, today’s season-opening tie for Premier League Champions, Manchester City against Liverpool ended on an even worse note with a horror moment for marquee signing Erling Haaland, Newspremises reports.

Haaland scored on his unofficial debut for Man City against Bayern Munich in pre-season and was predictably handed a starting berth in the traditional curtain raiser to the Premier League.

The 23-year-old Norwegian international and his teammates were on the receiving end of Liverpool’s incessant attacks at the inception of the game and it came as little surprise his side conceded the first goal.

Phil Foden forced Adrian to make a stunning save with a low strike that seemed destined to find the back of the net and the ball was parried out into the path of Erling Haaland…

City’s new frontman looked certain to open his account for the club on his debut but somehow rattled the crossbar with his effort from just six yards out.

Pep Guardiola’s side have recruited Haaland for a fee of £51.5m, per the Guardian, but they’re also paying out a mouthwatering £375,000-a-week in wages to the Norwegian.

Manchester City fans have however, took to Twitter to lambast Haaland for the big chance missed.

Below are some of the comments on social media:

@mattakhide tweeted: “What a terrible performance from Haaland today. He missed two sitters. I expect him to come back strong from this though.”

@4ty_4ty added: “The smile after the miss says it all. He will come good. He had a bad outing today but he is too good a player not to excel at City.”

@AryanRajvansh17 cheekily compared Haaland to Lukaku. “Erling haland watched videos of lakkaka.”

@TrolledByHarden questioned the abilities of the Norwegian: “Haaland getting exposed vs a premier league team”

@Tii_toe added: “They must really miss Gabriel Jesus at this point.”
