He has scored five goals in four games for the Spanish giants and earned a deserved call-up to England duty.

Despite being so young his appearance in the friendly against Scotland, live on talkSPORT, is his 26th for the Three Lions.

England dominated the first half and took the lead through Phil Foden before Bellingham made it 2-0 moments later.

A cross from the left was deflected and Andy Robertson failed to clear it properly, with the England star on hand to fire into the net.

Speaking on the goal, talkSPORT’s Stuart Peace said: “When England play at high tempo, it’s too much for Scotland.

“When the ball came in panic ensued and then it was an easy tap in.”

Bellingham was on hand to pull off a celebration that could soon become his trademark, his arms outstretched in front of the Hampden Park crowd.

Before his move to Madrid, he was heavily linked with a switch to Liverpool and it was Reds star Robertson who assisted him for the goal.

Many fans on social media were quick to spot what could have been at Anfield, with one saying: “Andy Robertson assisting Jude Bellingham. Exactly what Klopp wanted this season.”

“Robertson assisting Bellingham but not in the way Liverpool fans wanted,” added another.

A third said with a laughing emoji: “Andy Robertson assists Jude Bellingham. In another world.”

England went into the break with a deserved 2-0 lead in the friendly that was anything but, with Scotland fans booing ‘God Save the King’ beforehand.
