Jude Bellingham, the young midfielder who recently joined Real Madrid from Borussia Dortmund, has made an incredible start to his career by equaling a record previously set by Cristiano Ronaldo.
In Real Madrid’s Champions League group-stage opener against Union Berlin, Bellingham scored a late winner, securing a 1-0 victory for his team.
This goal marked his sixth goal in as many appearances across all competitions since joining Real Madrid.
Bellingham had previously opened his goal-scoring account for the club on his La Liga debut against Athletic Bilbao in August.
By achieving this feat on his Champions League debut, Bellingham joins an exclusive group of Real Madrid players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco, and Marco Asensio, who have scored on both their La Liga and Champions League debuts.
Bellingham’s late winner also made him the youngest-ever Real Madrid player and the youngest Englishman to score a stoppage-time goal in the Champions League.
The young midfielder expressed his joy at his performance and praised his team’s dominant display and never-say-die attitude.
He also emphasized the importance of learning from his experienced teammates and the overwhelming support of the passionate Real Madrid fans.
Looking ahead, Bellingham aims to continue his impressive form as Real Madrid prepares to face city rivals Atletico Madrid in La Liga.
