Apparently Lorenzo Insigne saw things a little differently.

Salzburg got off to a great start when Haaland stunned the crowd in Naples. He gave visitors the lead in the 11th minute.

Norweigan Haaland is only 19 and is the fourth player to achieve the feat of scoring in all his first four games in the Champions League.

He is only the second teenager, along with PSG’s Kylian Mbappe. to score in his first three games in the competition.

Unfortunately for Haaland, his team was undone right before the break, in the 43rd minute by an Hirving Lozano goal.

It was only the Mexican international’s second goal for Carlo Ancelotti’s side since his big-money move from PSV Eindhoven this summer.

Final score: Napoli 1  – 1 RB Salzburg.

Erling Haaland, on the other hand, is doing all the right things to enhance his reputation as one of the hottest prospects in European football.

The price being quoted is rumored to 100 million Euros, someone better get that deal wrapped up soon, because, at this rate, that might prove t be a bargain.
