It was expected that Gareth Southgate will call the player from Borussia Dortmund, but it became known that now on the account of the second player. Black & Yellow's Jude Bellingham received his first challenge after Southampton player James Ward-Prowse withdrew due to injury.

England will face matches with Ireland, Belgium and Iceland, with the latter yet to be determined how it will play due to travel restrictions due to the coronavirus.

Bellingham joined Borussia Dortmund in summer 2020. Despite the significant transfer fees, Bellingham has already played 11 games for Dortmund. Even starting his first match of the Bundesliga season with a 3-0 win over Borussia Mönchengladbach. The 17-year-old provided an assist for the match and also scored a goal in the DFB-Pokal, the German national cup.

Originally part of the under-21s, Southgate considered Bellingham ready to be drafted into the senior team and overlooked options like Ross Barkley.

Ready to take on the challenge

There has been a sign on the wall for some time about Jude Bellingham's success as a teenager. While pursuing his profession in Birmingham, Mike Dodds, Program Manager for the Professional Development Phase in Birmingham, told Goal, how Bellingham was destined to succeed as a member of the senior team.

“He was just like any other child. He has had ups and downs, ups and downs, disappointments and success, but he worked very hard and loves football incredibly ”, - said Dodds.

“He always wanted to win and he always wanted to get better. It was always in his makeup. When he was 12 years old, we thought that "this boy is actually half decent."

“He was a talented boy, but there are many talented boys. There should be good luck in this industry too. "

“But you only really knew he was going to be a footballer when he broke into the senior team. It is so difficult that it is difficult to say that his career will be different from that of any other boy. "
