England went ahead 2-1 against Italy when Marcus Rashford scored. Jude Bellingham did a great job setting up the goal.
A player from Italy was stopped by Bellingham on the edge of Jordan Pickford’s box. Phil Foden picked up the loose ball and started an England counterattack.
The Man City star found Bellingham running up the field after winning the ball back. The 20-year-old used his first touch to flick the ball past the Italy defender who was coming at him.
Marcus Rashford was then set up on the wing by Bellingham, who has scored 10 goals in his first 10 games for Real Madrid. Rashford waltzed past his full back and fired a low shot into the net to put England ahead.
It was then Harry Kane’s turn to score, as he (almost) always does.
At the start of England’s camp last week, Gareth Southgate was asked if Bellingham was the best player in the world.
“May I ask if you may say that?” the Three Lions manager asked.
“No, it’s not a silly question.” I don’t know how to study and watch everyone play.
“All I can say is that he plays for one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest, and he’s doing great. He’s currently the game-winner for them, so he’s in a great place.”
If England gets all three points in their European Championship qualifier, they will be guaranteed a spot in the event next year in Germany.
