Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland on Friday scripted history as he became the first player to score five goals in his first two Bundesliga appearances.

Haaland came off the bench in the second half to net a brace as Borussia Dortmund thrashed Koln 5-1 at the Signal Iduna Park.

Last week, Haaland made his Bundesliga debut away at Augsburg, after making his move from Austrian club RB Salzburg.

The 19-year-old came off the bench in the second half and netted a hat-trick on his debut to help Dortmund beat Augsburg 5-3.

Haaland has played just 59 minutes, so far, and averages a goal nearly every 12 minutes.

For the first time, Haaland missed a shot, scoring two goals from his three shots. He had converted all three shots on his debut in Augsburg.

The record for fastest five goals was previously held by Paco Alcácer (72 minutes).

Borussia Dortmund occupies the third spot in the Bundesliga table, behind leader Leipzig by four points, followed by Bayern Munich, also 36 points, but a superior goal difference.

Dortmund will now take on Union Berlin at home in the Bundesliga, next Saturday.
