Even to someone who knows absolutely nothing about the game of footy, at first glance, Erling Haaland looks out of place. Clocking in at six feet, four inches and a powerful 200 pounds, Haaland, a steely-eyed, ferocious titan on the pitch, seems like his hulking frame’s built better for crushing skulls in the NFL rather than crushing goals in the Premier League.

With every match came the opportunity for the former Borussia Dortmund phenom-turned Citizen to distinguish himself from his competitors in his new environment, while further elevating his already mythical scoring prowess. Now, after guiding Man City in his first year to its third consecutive league title and winning the 2023 Premier League Golden boot with 36 goals in 35 appearances — besting the league’s former record of 34, held by the legendary Alan Shearer and Andy Cole in the '90s — Haaland’s notoriety is soaring to new heights.

As the new face of English football, he’s a wanted man in more ways than one. But if you were wondering whether the progeny of Thor was single, the answer is no. Like the Viking heritage that runs through her golden-maned beau’s veins, Haaland's girlfriend Isabel Johansen is cut from the same cloth as the legendary Scandinavian warriors. So, if you keep sending thirsty DMs to the soccer cyborg, beware: when it comes to her beloved scoring champion, battle’s in her blood.

Where did Erling Haaland’s girlfriend Isabel Johansen grow up?

The 19-year-old Johansen grew up in Bryne, a small township in Rogaland county, Norway. Johansen was attending a youth soccer academy for the local football club in town where Haaland had been developing at since he was just 5 years old, according to The Sun. After meeting at the academy, the two quickly forged a strong connection, one that would only grow as Haaland would stay with the Norwegian side for more than a decade before moving on, first to RB Salzburg, then Borussia Dortmund and now Manchester City.

What is Erling Haaland’s girlfriend Isabel Johansen known for?

Who better to date one of the Premier League’s best than another soccer player? In addition to being able to hold her own out on the pitch as a competitive footballer, Johansen also dabbles in the fashion industry, working part-time at a boutique in Bryne. As long as she's in the arms of one of the world's most box office-producing footballers, retail sales doesn't seem like a career field that would have much of a role in her life, but it never hurts to have a backup plan!
