When one thinks of powerful football nations the likes of Brazil, Italy, Germany, Argentina, France, Spain, Portugal, England and the Netherlands come to mind. Canada, however, doesn't really feature on that list. In fact, Canada have only once featured in a FIFA World Cup campaign in their entire history, way back in 1986. Their results were somewhat unsatisfactory in that tournament, being knocked out of the group stages without scoring a single goal.
Tuesday night’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain looked to be heading towards a rather unexpected draw, when Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland thumped a long range effort into the back of the net to send the Westfalenstadion into ecstasy. Even experienced campaigners such as the likes of Paul Scholes would have been proud of a strike like that and it brought to the fore just how incredibly gifted this young man really is. 2-1 it would end to the German side, who looked to have the better of the Parisians for large segments of the much anticipated tie.
