Erling Haaland, the new Manchester City attacker, continued his good run for Norway, scoring twice to help his nation upset Sweden 3-2.
With a magnificent brace in Oslo, the £51 million man boosted his international record to 20 goals in 21 appearances at the age of 21.
Following a well-placed header in the first half, Haaland sent Robin Olsen the wrong way from the penalty spot in the second half to help Norway win their second game in a week.
Emil Forsberg halved the deficit with a well placed attempt from the outskirts of the box just after the hour mark, making it 2-1.
After Haaland picked out his strike partner with a lovely chip, former Crystal Palace forward Alexander Sorloth restored the hosts’ two-goal lead just 15 minutes later.
The hosts were given a fright late in the game when Coventry City forward Viktor Gyokeres scored a second for Sweden when goalkeeper Orjan Nyland clashed with teammate Leo Skiri Ostigard and fumbled the ball, but they held on to win their third game in a row.
Norway, which lost out on qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, currently leads the group by four points, with Serbia in second place with a game in hand.
Meanwhile, in Group C4, North Macedonia thrashed Gibraltar 4-0, partly owing to a brace from Bojan Miovski, who scored all four goals in the first half.
In the other game in the group, Georgia and Bulgaria drew 0-0, but North Macedonia’s triumph has reduced Georgia’s lead to three points at the top of the table.
