Homegrown Foden steals much-hyped Haaland's thunder

China Daily | Updated: 2021-04-08 00:00

MANCHESTER, England-Still opponents rather than teammates, Phil Foden showed Erling Haaland there's already a 20-year-old excelling at Manchester City.

Foden netted City's 90th-minute winner to clinch a 2-1 victory over Haaland's Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Tuesday-and even before that it was the local lad repeatedly flaunting his skills on the ball to bamboozle the visitor.

"They are a young team full of energy and they counterattack really quick," said England international Foden, a product of City's academy. "I was frustrated all night. I'd many chances to score and I kept going and in the end one paid off."
