Jude Bellingham has become the first BVB player to reach the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup. Bellingham was among the key performers for England as the 'Three Lions' beat Senegal 3-0 on Sunday evening.
The 19-year-old claimed the assist for Jordan Henderson's opening goal in the 38th minute, before then initiating the second goal for Harry Kane following a spirited run on the stroke of half-time (45+3). Having scored a goal in the opening group game against Iran, Bellingham has now become the first teenager since Lionel Messi in 2006 to notch a goal and an assist at a World Cup tournament.
England will now face reigning champions France in the quarter-finals on Saturday evening (20:00 CET). Bellingham's BVB team-mate Gio Reyna, meanwhile, missed out on a place in the last eight. Reyna came on as a half-time substitute in the USA's clash with the Netherlands on Saturday evening but could not prevent his country slipping to a 3-1 loss.
Raphael Guerreiro and Gregor Kobel will go head-to-head for another quarter-final berth when Portugal go up against Switzerland on Tuesday evening. Kick-off is at 20:00 CET.
