His shot took a deflection off Tomiyasu to find the net, before Haaland made it 3-1.
Speaking about the goal on Amazon Prime, he said: “I was going to reverse it but then I know Rammers from England and we always have banter, so I thought he’s going to think I’m going to try and reverse it.
“I was due one of them, just a deflection or something. I was going to take my top off, but I realised I was already on a yellow card so it’s a good job I didn’t.”
