Earling Holland confidently claimed that his immediate return to scoring form came as no surprise after helping Borasua Dortmund win the big Bundesliga with Schalke.
The 19-year-old Norwegian won 4-0 at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday as Germany’s top tier resumed after a two-month suspension due to a coronavirus epidemic.
Rafael Guerrero added a brace on both sides of the mighty Thorgan Hazard to complete Dortmund’s Riviarderby route, which showed a few signs of war.
Hollande suggested that his tenth goal in nine Bundesliga teams should be expected, although he acknowledged that he had not yet been able to move at full speed.
“Of course I’m not the same. I haven’t played a game in seven weeks, of course not,” he said on the official Bundesliga website.
“But I know I’ve worked hard during this period and I’m not surprised [to score], No. “
Not quite the same, but don’t be surprised by the score.

Holland and Dortmund have benefited from a brilliant Julian Brandt show that has led Bayern Munich’s top rivals.
The attacking midfielder was involved with four goals, with the players trying to keep to a minimum while each of them celebrated in unusual fashion.
“You have to find a way to make the most of the situation and have fun,” Brandt said. “
“What better way to start than to win? Obviously I would have preferred if the conditions were normal, but that’s it.
“It wasn’t a perfect performance, but I’m happy after such a long break.”
