Time to shine for Bellingham?

Sky Sports’ Nick Wright:

Could this be the age of Jude Bellingham? The midfielder came off the bench in a 1-0 win over Croatia at Euro 2020, becoming England’s youngest player to feature in a major tournament at 17 years and 349 days, with a total of Played 56 minutes. Run to the final.

This time, he hopes to be more prominent.

Bellingham has gained valuable experience over the past year, both at international level, winning a total of 17 appearances, and at club level as his importance to Dortmund continues to grow.

If Jude Bellingham leaves Borussia Dortmund next year, where will he choose next?

Bellingham, who started just two of Dortmund’s 34 Bundesliga games last season, has yet to miss a minute in the new season, with performances that sparked interest from Liverpool and prompted Dortmund’s sky-high £130m signing Get off him.

Gareth Southgate may find it impossible to ignore him in Qatar. Declan Rice is certainly a guaranteed starter, while Calvin Phillips is considered equally important in his midfield.

But Phillips won’t be as prepared as Bellingham, and with his recent injury problems and lack of playing time at City, that may need to be reconsidered.

Recent evidence suggests Bellingham will be ready to take his chances. He’s still a teenager who won’t turn 19 in June, but his burgeoning talent, combined with his combination of physical and technical prowess, could make him vital for England this winter.
