After the 3-3 win against Germany, the English press was unanimous: Jude Bellingham is ripe for a regular World Cup spot. So did England fans, who showered the 19-year-old with praise on social media.
A rundown of the best reactions to Bellingham’s terrific display against Germany:
Sky: “Brilliant Bellingham: Now the teenager will definitely play a key role in Southgate’s plans. His cool, calm and mature performances in midfield make it clear why Borussia Dortmund are asking 150 million euros if they want to part with their most valuable player next summer . Even that price is unlikely to deter a serious prospect. He has only had four World Cups in his life. We can expect him to be a key part of the fifth.”
Sun: “World Cup lead can come: child prodigy Bellingham shows that England’s World Cup hopes rest on his shoulders.”
Guardian: “Jude Bellingham impresses and stands out in Southgate’s side. Bellingham worked hard and became an increasingly influential part of the game in the second half. He was involved in the first goal and won the penalty.”
Telegraph: “Jude Bellingham is ready to take the World Cup by storm: England manager Gareth Southgate is convinced the 19-year-old is ready – as was everyone who saw him on Monday night.”
Daily Mail: “Jude Bellingham was the star who never stopped driving England: Bellingham shone in England’s comeback from a two-goal deficit. The 19-year-old played like an old hand.”
