Jude Bellingham's sensational solo goal vs Sevilla is the stuff of dreams, he is the future, he's got the lot
| Last updated
Jude Bellingham continued his impressive form with a moment of brilliance to score in Borussia Dortmund's Champions League tie against Sevilla.
Bellingham's reputation has been growing in the past couple of years at Dortmund and now he's started to be considered a key member of the England team as well, with the World Cup just around the corner.
Such is his talent, ability and maturity, at just 19-years-old, that Dortmund named him as the captain for the weekend's fixture, as they faced Koln in the Bundesliga, losing the game 3-2.
Despite the loss, Edin Terzic once again handed the armband to the former Birmingham City youngster on Wednesday night, as they faced Sevilla.
Clearly the extra responsibility wasn't weighing heavily on the teenager, as he set up the first goal of the night and then scored the second himself.
Having assisted Raphael Guerreiro for the opener, playing a great ball out to the left before the full back unleashed a brilliant shot, Bellingham showed his own skill in front of goal.
The midfielder made a perfect run in behind defenders and into the left side of the box, jinxed past some defenders and perfectly slotted the ball into the opposite corner of the goal.

As well as his goal and assist, Bellingham broke a couple of Champions League records, although they weren't on the level of Lionel Messi scoring against his 40th opponents in the competition.
The England star became the youngest player from the country to captain a team in UEFA's number one club competition and also became the first midfield teenager to score in three consecutive games in it.
In fact, previously the only teenager to have scored in the first three games of a Champions League campaign was Erling Haaland, in the 2019/20 season.
It's no wonder that Bellingham is one of the most sought after players in the world right now, with a slew of Premier League teams hoping to bring him back to England.
However, right now it looks like Real Madrid will be favourites to sign him next summer, despite Haaland's attempts to get the midfielder to reunite with him at Manchester City.

After Bellingham's goal, Karim Adeyami piled on more trouble for the hosts, scoring just two minutes later and giving the Germans a 3-0 lead going into the break.
Youssef En-Nesyri pulled one back for the hosts but Julian Brandt returned the three goal advantage with just 15 minutes to go.
After the match it was confirmed that it was Julen Lopetegui's last in charge of Sevilla, with Jorge Sampaoli expected to replace him, with the former Spain boss the number one target to take over at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
