Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Jude Bellingham is a serious talent.

The 18-year-old is quickly becoming one of the best midfielders in world football and he’ll almost certainly be an England regular in the next year or so.

Bellingham has been outstanding for Borussia Dortmund ever since he joined from Birmingham City and he’s one of the first names on the team sheet these days.

And against Besiktas in the Champions League on Wednesday, the teenage sensation showed the world exactly why he’s an automatic starter for the Bundesliga outfit.

Bellingham opened the scoring against Besiktas with a delightful goal and just before the half-time break, the lanky midfielder assisted Erling Braut Haaland

 to make it 2-0 on the night.

It was a marvellous assist from the Englishman as well.

He picked up the ball near the touchline, slalomed through Besiktas’ defence with ease and then put it on a plate for Haaland.

Take a look at both moments of magic from Bellingham here…

The kid really is special.

According to Opta, Bellingham’s goal means he is now the youngest player in Champions League history to score in back-to-back games in the competition.

The player he beat to achieve the record? Only Kylian Mbappe

It’s scary to think how much Bellingham is going to cost when he inevitably jumps ship in a few years time.

This summer, Jack Grealish became the first £100 million Englishman and at this moment in time, you’d bet on the Dortmund man becoming the second.
