The Borussia Dortmund midfielder nearly missed out on the World Cup qualifiers this week, due to Covid-19 regulations in Germany, but was eventually allowed to join up with the national team.
Gareth Southgate was certainly happy with the outcome and Bellingham was straight into his starting lineup for the game against San Marino.
The 17-year-old might have only been coming up against the 210th ranked team in world football but he still put on an extremely impressive display.
If the opponents to his skills weren't considered good enough then he was also showing off whilst warming up against his own teammates, making Eric Dier look foolish with a nutmeg.
Following the match, the true extent of Bellingham's excellent performance, in which he controlled the game, and made excellent passes and penetrative runs, was truly revealed.
The former Birmingham City player managed to actually impress professional grump Roy Keane! With the former Manchester United captain even letting him off for an acrobatic miss in the second half.
"Bellingham looks like a complete midfielder. He's still a kid playing regularly in Germany," the Irishman told ITV.
"He'll be disappointed with missing the chance, but at 17 he has nice composure, happy to break forward, very good night's work.
"He will be disappointed with the chance, he tries to complicate it when he should just side-foot it."
The teenager might have impressed England fans but it's not exactly the first time he's put in a performance to belie his youth and inexperience this season.
In Dortmund's recent Champions League success over Sevilla in the last 16, Bellingham had a great game, only overshadowed by Erling Haaland's brace.

Haaland has clearly been impressed with his teammate, referring to the midfielder at 'Stevie G' to compare him with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
