Erling Haaland could be set to miss Sunday's European qualifier with Scotland after the Manchester City star picked up an injury in a friendly clash.

The former Borussia Dortmund man limped off as Norway defeated the Faroe Islands 2-0 last night and it appeared to be an ankle issue that forced the striker to be replaced.

Haaland has struggled with ankle injuries in the past and the Norwegian team doctor, Ola Sand, believes it could be the same problem that has been aggravated. 

Sand revealed, per Vg: "He got a slight twist in his ankle, where he is a bit vulnerable. It hurts a lot right away, and then it goes away pretty quickly. Then we'll see tomorrow how he is then."

This could force Haaland to miss Sunday's Hampden Park showdown as Scotland close out their European qualifiers having already qualified for Germany 2024.

Man City manager Pep Guardiola will also be sweating knowing his side have a key Premier League fixture against Liverpool to come after the international break.

Meanwhile, Scotland manager Steve Clarke praised his side for keeping their cool and using Georgia’s time-wasting “shenanigans” to their advantage after Lawrence Shankland headed a stoppage-time equaliser in Tbilisi.

Georgia twice took the lead through the impressive Napoli attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, but late call-up Shankland earned Scotland a 2-2 draw when he headed home fellow substitute Stuart Armstrong’s cross two minutes into added time.

Despite Scotland having already sealed their Euro 2024 place and Georgia knowing they face a play-off in March, there was a real competitive edge to the game, with three yellow cards for each team and a melee in each half.

Clarke felt his side reacted well to some lengthy stoppages for treatment to home players and took advantage of the eight minutes added on.

Clarke said: “That’s one of the challenges when you come here, you know they will do everything they can to get a positive result.

“You have to react to that. We have to make sure we control ourselves and don’t get involved, don’t encourage any sort of shenanigans.

“We just kept going, kept plugging away, we knew there was going to be extra time because now they have a better handle on time wasted, and it was nice to score in injury time.”
