Borussia Dortmund and Norway striker Erling Braut Haaland has received the 2020 Golden Boy award as most promising young player in the world.

The trophy is handed out by newspaper Tuttosport after an intensive voting process, including a panel of global experts, to the player under the age of 21 who is most likely to break out and become a star.

Haaland is only 20 years old, but already earned a €20m transfer from RB Salzburg to Borussia Dortmund in January.

His scoring rate is astonishing, including six goals in just seven senior caps for Norway.

The son of former Leeds United forward Alf-Inge Haaland has 11 goals in 11 competitive games for Borussia Dortmund so far this season.

That includes four goals in three Champions League matches.

Haaland defeated the likes of Mason Greenwood, Billy Gilmour, Fati Ansu, Gabriel Martinelli and his fellow team-mate, Jadon Sancho amongst others.

Initially, it was Jadon Sancho who led the race for the 2020 Golden Boy award. See full list here.
