Haaland Scores Twice as Man City Hit Five in Tokyo Friendly


Manchester City roared back from two goals down to beat J-League champions Yokohama F-Marinos 5-3 in their first match of a pre-season tour of Japan on Sunday.


Erling Haaland scored a brace, while John Stones, Julian Alvarez and Rodri were also on target for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Yokohama took a two-goal lead through Anderson Lopes and Ken Matsubara, but City responded with three goals in the second half.

Haaland got the comeback started in the 52nd minute, firing home from an acute angle after receiving possession from Phil Foden.

Stones equalized three minutes later, heading home from a corner, and Alvarez put City ahead in the 72nd minute with a cool finish.

Rodri added a fourth goal in the 75th minute, and Haaland completed the scoring in the second minute of stoppage time.

The win was a good start to City’s pre-season preparations, and it will give Haaland confidence ahead of the new season.

The Norwegian striker has been in fine form since joining City from Borussia Dortmund in January, and he will be hoping to continue his goalscoring exploits in the upcoming campaign.

City will next play Bayern Munich on Wednesday in Tokyo, before traveling to Seoul to face Ulsan Hyundai on Saturday.
