The Three Lions were eliminated from the competition in last Saturday’s heartbreaking quarter-final loss to France.

“Jude Bellingham, he’s one of us,” chanted fans as the teenager strolled across the pitch, arms raised in gratitude for those who saw him rise to become one of England’s most talented youngsters.

Speaking of the future, while the midfielder arrived to thank the fans, he was also apparently there to watch his younger brother Jobe, who came off the bench to replace another young star, Hannibal Mejbri.
It’s safe to say that Bellingham picked a great game to watch, with Troy Deeney making the difference by scoring twice to give Birmingham the three points, despite the midland side making a late comeback the guests survived.
Questions are now looming over his future as the talented midfielder’s contract with Dortmund expires in 2025.

Following his stellar performances at the World Cup, Bellingham will have done much to cement his reputation as one of the most exciting midfielders in the world.
Clubs across Europe are trying to tie him down, with Liverpool reportedly leading the way in acquiring the England midfielder.
But it was Birmingham where his career began as the 19-year-old rose through the ranks of the club’s academy to join the senior team in 2019.
They were so impressed with him that they even retired the No. 22 jersey in homage to their future superstar – and they definitely showed their admiration again tonight.
