But soccer is a sport that unites and well Manchester City was able to get the Peacemaker star to aid their top goal scorer in announcing the club’s preseason tour in the United States this summer.

In the video Haaland gets a call from John Cena with Cena dressed in full Manchester City gear and a blonde wig, representing the locks of Erling Haaland.

Erling Haaland announces that Manchester City will play matches in New York, Chapel Hill, Columbus, and Orlando. Cena is seen celebrating the announcement in a funny manner until Erling Haaland gets to see Cena via his cell phone.
