Manchester City vs Club America result: Kevin De Bruyne nets two goals, but no debut for Erling Haaland

Defending Premier League champions Manchester City beat Mexican side Club America 2-1 in their

opening preseason match in Houston, Texas, but this summer's star signing Erling Haaland did not see the field.

Haaland was expected to make his much-anticipated debut at NRG Stadium, but he was kept on the

bench due to "a minor injury complaint," according to the club's official site. Cameras captured

Haaland dressed in a hoodie and seated next to center back Ruben Dias,

who was not part of the matchday squad.

While the attention was on the new players, it was old reliable Kevin De Bruyne who accounted for both Man City goals.
