FIFA U-20 World Cup

Nine-goal Haland and Norway make history

Erling Haland scored nine times to shatter the record for goals in a FIFA U-20 World Cup match and help Norway thrash Honduras 12-0 in the biggest victory in the competition’s history. He outranked Adailton, who scored six for Brazil in a 10-3 win over Korea Republic in 1997.

Haland's first came in the seventh minute, and by half-time he already had four to his name. The pick of the bunch was when Tobias Borkeeiet found Haland with a looping through ball, and the hulking centre-forward did the rest.

Two red cards for Honduras made matters worse as Los Catrachos crashed out of Poland 2019 emphatically.

Norway will have to wait to find out their fate in the competition. They hope their goal difference will be enough to see them finish as one of the top four third-placed sides.
