England fans are united in their agreement after witnessing the Three Lions triumph over Scotland at Hampden Park.
Gareth Southgate’s team emerged victorious with a 3-1 scoreline in the 150th-anniversary fixture, and Jude Bellingham, once again, was the standout performer.
The 20-year-old is exuding confidence following his remarkable start at Real Madrid and contributed a goal and an assist in the victory, earning the unanimous approval of England supporters.
Phil Foden initiated the scoring, followed by Bellingham doubling England’s lead shortly after. However, Harry Maguire, coming off the bench, unintentionally gifted Scotland a lifeline with an own goal. Nevertheless, England’s captain, Harry Kane, ensured the friendly victory with a clinical finish.
The goal by Kane was orchestrated by a remarkable piece of play from Bellingham, who was in a league of his own during the match.
Someone needs to have a word with Jude Bellingham. No one should this good at this age 😭

The Birmingham City academy product is so good, in fact, that people have already decided England are winning the Euros in Germany next year.
One commented: “Jude Bellingham is absolutely sensational. We’re winning the Euros aren’t we.”
A second said: “Foden, Bellingham & Saka are winning us the euros. That three behind Harry Kane will be absolutely devastating.”
A third predicted: “Bellingham Ballon d’Or charge coming after we win the Euros.”
A fourth user added: “Bellingham can win us the Euros on his own. What a talent.”
Another had the same view, stating: “Jude Bellingham will win us the euros alone, phenomenal player.”
A final person opined: “Bellingham is different gravy and he could genuinely win us the Euros by himself.”
Bellingham’s introduction to life at Real Madrid has been nothing short of electrifying, with the midfielder notching five goals in his first four games and achieving the distinction of becoming the first Englishman to claim the La Liga Player of the Month award.
In tonight’s match, only his 26th appearance in an England jersey, he displayed a level of confidence and swagger that would lead you to believe he’s been a fixture in the team for years.
The ongoing debate surrounding the likes of Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes, and Frank Lampard may soon have a new contender if Bellingham maintains his current level of performance.
