Erling Haaland scores 4 as Borussia Dortmund beat Hertha Berlin 5-2

Erling Haaland scored four goals in a sensational second-half performance to help Borussia Dortmund come from a goal down to crush hosts Hertha Berlin 5-2 yesterday morning (Singapore time) to climb to second place in the Bundesliga.

The Norwegian took his season's tally in the league to 10 goals in seven matches. The 20-year-old said an energy drink that he drank at half-time "gave him wings".

Teenage forward Youssoufa Moukoko, who replaced Haaland late in the game, became the youngest Bundesliga player at 16 years and one day. - REUTERS
