The goal was not only his first goal in the World Cup - it also made him England’s second-youngest goal scorer at the tournament behind only Michael Owen.
Bellingham is also the first player born after the year 2000 to score in the World Cup; a crazy stat to actually think about.
Bellingham’s stats from the game also showed that even though he only scored one goal, he was a big part of England’s midfield dominance.
Where next for Bellingham?
The Dortmund attacker’s future at the club is still in the air. Bellingham has been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea, while his former Dortmund teammate, Erling Haaland also wants him to join him at Manchester City.
Madrid are said to be unwilling to pay Dortmund’s valuation of the player, but his showing at the World Cup could only make that valuation far higher come to the end of the tournament.
