Erling Haaland demonstrated his extraordinary qualities again as he struck a ridiculous volley during a Norway team training session.
Haaland has already proven time and again, over the short course of his career, that he is capable of the unthinkable. He basically averages a goal every match so far.
The 22-year-old just had a record-breaking season with Manchester City, where he broke all sorts of milestones in his maiden season in England.
Haaland scored 52 times in 53 appearances to help Pep Guardiola's side win the unprecedented treble, with the elusive Champions League title finally coming home on June 10.
After the final versus Inter Milan in Istanbul and the four-day bender that followed, the Norwegian linked up with his international teammates as the race to qualify for next year's Euro Championships gathered pace.
They lost their first game against Scotland recently despite Haaland grabbing a goal.
Haaland demonstrates his shot power
Ahead of their encounter against Cyprus, Haaland was spotted doing some shot training.
A video released by the Norwegian federation's social media account showed a coach hitting the ball towards Haaland, who rested it on his chest before rattling it in from way out.
The ball crashed into the post before shaking the back of the net, with the goalkeeper and the rest of the people in training looking perplexed and then exclaiming about his prowess.
The former Borussia Dortmund man carried the same form into the game against Cyprus, scoring twice in a crucial 3-1 win. Norway are now third with four points, eight adrift of group leaders, Scotland, per SkySports.
