Ajax striker Haller makes CL history with first half brace

Ajax striker Sebastien Haller made Champions League history following his first-half brace against Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday night.

The former West Ham striker took just 68 seconds to put his side into the lead as they went on to beat the Portuguese giants 5-1 with the striker bagging four goals in the game.

After opening the goalscoring gates inside the first minute, Haller was to double his sides lead in the ninth minute to put his name in the Champions League history books.

The goals saw the 27-year-old become the first player in the competition to score a brace in his first nine minutes of play.

The Ivory Coast forward who spent the better part of his youthful career in France has been a revelation for Ajax since joining in 2021 where he has scored 15 goals in 23 appearances.
