Gary Lineker lauds 'unbelievably good' Bellingham after England win

Gary Lineker took to Twitter during England’s World Cup win over Senegal to suggest that Jude Bellingham is unbelievably good as the Liverpool transfer target ran the show for Gareth Southgate’s men.

But ultimately, it was England who struck first. Bellingham latched onto a brilliant through ball to find Jordan Henderson. The Reds star made no mistake from just inside the area.

And the 19-year-old was involved in the build-up to the second also. He made a blistering run forward which led to Phil Foden playing in Harry Kane for the stoppage-time strike.

It is no longer a surprise when Bellingham steals the show for club or country. He has been superb for England in this tournament. And he is proving why there is such interest in his signature.

Certainly, Liverpool would love to take the teenager to Anfield. Reports from 90min claimed just before the tournament that the Reds were scouting Bellingham in action for Borussia Dortmund.

There is little that still needs to be said about Bellingham at this stage. But Lineker summed up how many feel about the teenager during the first-half against Senegal…

Liverpool fans had a glimpse of what could be with Bellingham setting up Henderson. And there was an amazing moment where they were both pointed at each other after the goal, as if to suggest to the fans that the other deserved the credit.

Henderson would surely love to have Bellingham join him at Liverpool. But any side who can possibly afford him will surely be in the running after his World Cup heroics.
