'New Zlatan' makes UCL history

UEFA Champions League

Red Bull Salzburg wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland made further history after scoring against Liverpool in the seven-goal UEFA Champions League thriller at Anfield.

After becoming the first player since Wayne Rooney to score a hat-trick on debut in Europe's elite club competition, the 19-year-old striker, who was left on the bench due to illness - still managed to find the net.

The Norway international scored the equaliser before Mohamed Salah's winner in the 4-3 victory, which marked his fourth goal in his second game.

Only Didier Drogba, Diego Simeone and Marco van Baasten managed to replicate his exploits in the history of the competition.

The teenager dubbed 'the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic' has scored 18 goals and registered five assists in 11 games this season.
