The World Cup is coming. Football stars travel to Qatar to play for the title. But for some players, the tournament also means an unusually early interruption. For example, for Erling Haaland from Manchester City. The 22-year-old did not qualify for the World Cup with Norway and will therefore be out of match practice for six weeks. A friendly amateur club wants to prevent this.

“We want to help keep Erling fit,” Ashton United wrote in an official club statement. The club from the English town of Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester, asked the “Citizens” if they could loan Haaland during the World Cup break. You can try. Ashton United manager Michael Clegg says: “City are not playing. So it makes more sense for him to play with us than to spend six weeks on the golf course.”

Ashton desperately needed support. After last Saturday’s defeat, the “Robins” are in eleventh place. And Haaland would be an excellent addition, Clegg is sure: “He would be a perfect fit for us and also fit very well into our team dynamic.”

A response from Manchester City is still awaited, Ashton United said in a statement. (No)

Italy has a long history as the favorite team of many Swiss. But the “Squadra Azzurra” are missing from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar (partly due to Switzerland winning the qualifying group that included both teams).
