Many Liverpool fans have flocked to a tweet from Jude Bellingham following England’s 4-0 win over Andorra on Sunday.
The 18-year-old started the game alongside two Reds players in midfield, with Jordan Henderson in the middle of a three and Trent Alexander-Arnold trialled on the right.
How did Bellingham perform on Sunday?
As per Squawka, the teenager recorded a pass accuracy of 96%, won seven duels and created three chances over the course of his 62 minutes on the pitch. Andorra ought to be considered minnows given their world ranking of 156, but Bellingham’s performance attracted rave reviews nonetheless.
“Only Andorra but Bellingham’s class is clear,” The Times’ Chief Football Writer Henry Winter tweeted, while fellow sports journalist Harry Roy gushed: “The more I watch Jude Bellingham play, the more I understand why Birmingham retired his shirt number when he left. The kid is generational.”
Could Liverpool lure him to Anfield?
Bellingham has previously revealed that Anfield icon Steven Gerrard is one of his footballing ‘heroes’, and that ‘all I wanted’ was one of his number 8 shirts (via Bundesliga.com), while the Reds were tentatively linked with the teenager during the summer.
