Jude Bellingham silences Scotland fans with England celebration to leave Andy Robertson apologising


Jude Bellingham carried his immense club form onto the international stage as he took charge against Scotland.

The 20-year-old midfielder, who has shone in his opening appearances for Real Madrid this season after his summer move from Borussia Dortmund, put England 2-0 up at Hampden Park on Tuesday night.

England dominated the first half and took the lead through Phil Foden before Bellingham double the scoreline moments later.

A cross from the left saw an Andy Robertson error gift the rising star a goal scoring opportunity, which he took.

Bellingham then pulled out what has become his goal celebration in front of the Hampden Park crowd.

Before his move to Madrid, he was heavily linked with a switch to Liverpool and it was Reds star Robertson who assisted him for the goal.

Many fans on social media were quick to spot what could have been at Anfield, with one saying: “Andy Robertson assisting Jude Bellingham. Exactly what Klopp wanted this season.”

“Robertson assisting Bellingham but not in the way Liverpool fans wanted,” added another.

A third said with a laughing emoji: “Andy Robertson assists Jude Bellingham. In another world.”

The mistake hurt the captain, who apologised to his teammates.

“The second goal is completely my fault,’ he said afterwards.

“Obviously that can’t happen. But you take it on the chin and try and react and in the second half we got ourselves back in the game.

“We had a couple of half chances, the crowd were up and then we gave Harry Kane half a yard and he put the game to bed.

“I hate letting this team down and that’s what I’ve done tonight. I hate costing goals and I just didn’t quite expect the ball to land at my feet and it has just fallen to him.

“And when you’re coming up against Bellingham with the form he’s in, he’s not going to let you get away with it.

‘”I had to apologise to the team and the manager. I did that and I just tried to have a positive reaction in the second half and I think I’ve done that but obviously I’ll be kicking myself tonight.”

England went into the break with a deserved 2-0 lead in the friendly that was anything but, with Scotland fans booing ‘God Save the King’ beforehand.

An own goal from Harry Maguire brought Scotland back into the game but Bellingham was back being involved with the goals soon after.

He fed a neat ball through to Harry Kane, who proceeded to slot it into the bottom corner to seal a 3-1 victory.
