England’s game in the World Cup

Speaking of the Three Lions, they kicked off their 2022 World Cup campaign in style as they beat Iran in a 6-2 thrashing thanks to a brace from Bukayo Saka and efforts from Jude Bellingham, Raheem Sterling, Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish. Take your pick of who impressed the most for Gareth Southgate’s squad but according to ESPN’s James Olley, it was Bellingham who stood out. At just 19 years old, Bellingham has been able to add dynamism and ingenuity in an area of the pitch England have lacked for years. He still has a ways to go in terms of developing but this was a hugely promising start — and no doubt caught the eye of the top clubs eyeing a move for the Borussia Dortmund star, including Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid.
