In this article, you will get all information regarding Jude Bellingham’s goal for England against Iran sees him become the Three Lions’ second-youngest World Cup goalscorer with Bukayo Saka also on target in big win
Jude Bellingham’s goal against Iran made him the second-youngest England goalscorer in World Cup history.
The 19-year-old midfielder capped his first-ever appearance in the competition with a superb header to put the Three Lions ahead.
After a positive England start, there was a lengthy stoppage of play as Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand was stretched off following a bad collision with team-mate Majid Hosseini.
However, the Three Lions soon saw the fruits of their labor when Luke Shaw raced across the area to find Bellingham, who then sent a cutting header into the back of the net.
He is now England’s second-youngest World Cup goalscorer after Michael Owen, who scored against Romania in 1998 aged 18.
The Borussia Dortmund man, who was 14 when England played in 2018, now has as many goals in the competition as former striker Wayne Rooney.
And England didn’t stop there with Bukayo Saka and Raheem Sterling making it 3-0 before half-time as England fans chanted to Iranian fans in the stadium “Are you dressed as Scotland?”
Now, with 21-year-old Saka also scoring, England have had two players aged 21 or younger score in a single World Cup game for the first time in their history.
