Oleksandr Zinchenko amusingly performed the Jude Bellingham celebration right in front of him after England’s match against Ukraine.
In Saturday’s match, Ukraine and England ended in a 1-1 draw, with the Three Lions maintaining their position at the top of Group C with 13 points.
Kyle Walker netted his debut goal for England, equalizing Zinchenko’s opening goal.

He has scored an impressive five goals in only four La Liga matches and has swiftly become a beloved figure among Real Madrid supporters.
The 20-year-old has gained recognition for his celebratory style, receiving an enthusiastic reception after his 95th-minute game-winning goal against Getafe just before the international break.
Even tennis ace Carlos Alcaraz has adopted the same celebration, paying homage to the English star at the US Open.
Zinchenko is the most recent sports star to imitate Bellingham, and notably, he performed the celebration right in front of the superstar talent.
