Manchester City defeated Manchester United 2-1 at Wembley today to win the FA Cup but Erling Haaland confused fans before the match.
The Norwegian superstar was caught on camera ‘mumbling’ the national anthem prior to kick-off.

Fans were quick to take to social media and wondered why he was singing it.
One said, ‘Did Haaland begin to sing the national anthem then realised he is Norwegian?’
Another added, ‘Why was Haaland singing the English national anthem.’
A third commented, ‘Haaland singing the national anthem it’s not too late to change nationality.’
