Erling Haaland is currently with his national team ahead of Norway friendly matches against Czech Republic on Friday and Slovakia on Tuesday.

Footage from a Norway training session on Tuesday showed Haaland in pain.

Haaland has however played down talks of injury, and has said he’s fine.

The Norwegian team doctor has also clarified that there was no problem with the striker’s fitness.

Speaking at a news conference in Oslo on Thursday, Haaland said he was “feeling fine”, and wondered who came up with reports that he didn’t complete training because of an injury.

“I didn’t walk off the training — I don’t know who wrote that,” he said in English.

“I trained the full training and I’m feeling good and ready to play the game.”
