Jude Bellingham Hilariously Asks If He Take Man Of The Match Award As Hand Luggage On Plane

Jude Bellingham discussed his Man of the Match award dilemma after his masterclass for England - with the midfielder unsure if he could take the prize in his hand luggage.

The Borussia Dortmund man conjured up an impressive outing in the 3-0 win over Ivory Coast at Wembley, combining wonderfully with the likes of Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling.


Bellingham was voted as England's Player of the Match for his strong showing and had a little chat with England's media for social content.

Holding his trophy, the 18-year-old expressed concern as to how he was going take the item back to Dortmund with him on the plane.

"Yeah I think this one's going to come on the plane back," Bellingham said when asked where the award would be going.

"I don't know if I can take it on the plane actually. Can you take it in hand luggage?! I don't know, maybe I'll keep it in England."

Bellingham had earlier thanked fans for voting for him and couldn't hide his disappointment over not finding the net.

The 18-year-old is still searching for his first England goal and was denied by a combination of Badri Ali Sangare and the post after a slick first half move.

But Bellingham's runs from midfield were a nightmare for Ivory Coast and he brings a completely different dimension to England's way of playing.

He looks to be well in contention for a starting spot at the World Cup and his fellow Brummie Grealish can't believe the level he's already playing at.

"I haven't actually (played with a teenager who is that good)," Grealish told a press conference.

"It is scary how good he is at 18.

'He is just so mature. He is built like he is my age at 26. He has so much technical ability and he is mature for his age.

"I can tell you one thing, I was nowhere near as good at 18. I was at Notts County and I was a scrawny little thing as well.

"You see talented 18 or 19-year-old kids but not many are that mature as he is on the pitch. He is so versatile and can play in many different positions on the pitch.

"He can be a six, eight or a 10. It was good to play with him and I think it was my first time playing with him. It is nice to play with a fellow Brummie."
