Erling Haaland got the ultimate revenge on Sweden defender Alexander Milosevic during Norway’s 2-1 victory on Sunday.

Haaland scored twice as Norway made it two wins out of two in their Nations League group B4.

Those two goals also took his international goals tally to 18 in 19. What an incredible record.

Haaland opened the scoring in the 20th-minute from the penalty spot before he added a second with his right foot with 20 minutes remaining.

Manchester United’s Anthony Elanga scored a late consolation for Sweden.

But how do you stop Haaland? He seems simply unstoppable in a Norway shirt.

Well, Milosevic had an idea.

The AIK defender opted for an aggressive approach and decided to abuse Haaland during the game.

At least that’s according to the Norwegian himself.

He claims the defender called him a wh**e and threatened to break his legs.

Wow.

How did Haaland respond?

Well, 90 seconds later, he made it 2-0 to Norway and celebrated in Milosevic’s face. That’s one way to silence the abuse…

“First he called me a wh**e,” Haaland told TV2. “I can safely say that I am not.

“Secondly, he said he was going to break my legs, a minute and a half later I scored. That was fine, that.”

It’s worth noting that Milosevic denied those claims.

“I would not have said that,” he said.

“It is quite rude to say what he says, because I do not speak Norwegian and he does not speak Swedish, so I do not know how we should communicate. I do not speak English on the pitch, so it is special that he says things I have not said.”

He went on to say there wasn’t any arguments between him and Haaland.

“No, not really, to be completely honest,” Milosevic replied. “I have played matches where I have been more annoyed.

He then insisted Haaland wasn’t one of the best players he’s faced.

Reporter: “Is he the best football player you have met?”

Milosevic: “No.”

Reporter: “Almost?”

Milosevic: “No.”

Norway’s Leo Skiri Østigård also was asked about the alleged exchange and suggested that it was a silly thing to do.

“That’s the dumbest thing to do,” the Brighton man said. “To fire up Erling – I’ve tried to do it in training, and I’ll never do it again. It’s something he likes, and then it slams fast behind you.”
