Jude Bellingham continues to cement his position as one of the most impressive young players in the world as he continues to shine in the league Champions League before he even turns 20.
The 19-year-old scored the first goal of the game as Borussia Dortmund took the lead at Manchester City, although the Premier League champions scored twice in the last 10 minutes to seal the win.
Bellingham admitted he was “gutted” after the defeat but his personal progress continues at a breathtaking pace as he scored the fourth Champions League goal of his career.
That’s the most goals ever scored by an English teenager in the Champions League, while his 18 Champions League appearances also represent the most goals scored by an English teenager.
The former Birmingham midfielder has 15 caps for England and is hoping to play a big part in the World Cup later this year.
After the game he spoke impressively for such a young man, admitting defeat but immediately drawing attention to a big Bundesliga clash with Schalke on Saturday.
“It’s hard to see her [the positives] Now to be honest,” Bellingham told BT Sport. “I’m devastated about 15 minutes into the game
“But this is football against these big teams, but we have a huge game in the derby on Saturday, huge for us and the fans.
“It’s important that we get back on our feet and quickly take the positive results with us and learn from them.”
The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool next year but Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is clearly a big fan of his too.
“Jude Bellingham is an exceptional, great player,” said the Spaniard. “I think everyone knows, not just because the Manchester City manager tells you!”
