Last night, Jude Bellingham (19) became the only English teenager to score in four consecutive Champions League games. His goal against Sevilla secured an important point for Borussia Dortmund in Group G.
With goals against Copenhagen, Manchester City and Sevilla in four consecutive Champions League games this season, Bellingham surpasses Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, who scored three Champions League goals in a single season before his 20th birthday.
Scoring in four consecutive games, Bellingham joins Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé in becoming the only teenagers hold this record.
Speaking to Amazon Prime following Dortmund’s draw against Sevilla on Tuesday night, Mats Hummels praised Bellingham: “He always wants to win, every training session, every game. I wish I had that kind of energy still.
“He’s played every minute this season. He’s allowed to make mistakes. I’d rather have him play that way and complain five times than someone who was silent for 90 minutes and was less ambitious.”
