Jude Bellingham’s reaction to finding out his pace rating on EA FC 24 was priceless.
Bellingham’s performance in a 3-1 win against Scotland was the latest reminder as to why the 20-year-old has become the darling of Spanish football in recent weeks.
The England star had a hand in Phil Foden’s opener, netted the second, and weaved through the Scotland midfield to set up Harry Kane for the third.
Bellingham’s performance was so impressive that a small contingent of a previously hostile Hampden Park ended up applauding the youngster upon his substitution from the field towards the end of Tuesday's win.
Indeed, Bellingham, who already has 26 caps for England, has already become the crowning jewel in Real Madrid’s attack after a summer move from Borussia Dortmund.
Operating in a more advanced No.10 role, the Birmingham-born midfielder is Real’s top scorer this term, while he won La Liga’s Player of the Month award for August.
And while Bellingham appears to have admirers throughout football, EA FC appears to not rate one aspect of the Real star’s game - his pace.
In a video published on Real Madrid's YouTube, presenters asked Bellingham what he thinks his pace rating will be for the upcoming game, which will be released at the end of the month.
Bellingham replied: “I’ve got to be like, 84?”
After hearing his pace was only a 76 however, Bellingham's jaw dropped. Team-mate Brahim Diaz then impersonated the midfielder’s running style, jokingly explaining: "You're running like this all the time bro."
Bellingham then gathered himself and responded: “You’re joking. I was more last year. So I’ve gone down?”
The presenter bluntly replied: “Yes. You’ve gone down.”
Bellingham has been given an 86 overall rating, an improvement on his 84 rating in last year’s edition of the game.
