After the first half ended 0-0, the balance between the two teams was broken in the second half.

Haaland commented on her feelings about receiving the Guard of Honor: “Everybody hit me on the back and it was painful, but it was so good and I was happy. But I don’t care about personal records. I had a conversation with Grealish before the game and he said he wanted to give me an assist. “Now I’m going to go home and play video games. (Which game?) I’m too shy to tell you,” he said with a laugh.
