Despite scoring 52 goals in all competitions and winning the treble with Manchester City, Erling Haaland is only second in the Golden Ball nomination list after World Cup champion – Lionel Messi.
The Argentine superstar showed an impressive performance at the biggest football festival on the planet. Not only did he contribute professionally, Messi also performed his role as a leader to help his team win the prestigious gold cup.
Messi winning the Golden Ball title was not unexpected by many fans and it seems that Erling Haaland is also among them.
Recently, the striker on the payroll of The Citizens also sent his seniors the message “Felicitaciones @LEOMESSI” which means “Congratulations, Messi”.
Haaland still has many opportunities to step up to the category that every player desires. This season, the Norwegian striker continues to show incredible performance.
After 15 appearances on all fronts, he scored 13 goals and contributed 3 assists. If he continues to maintain performances like this, Haaland will be a bright candidate for the Golden Ball title next year.
