WHAT HAPPENED?
Bellingham was England’s match-winner against Serbia, heading home the only goal of the match in a 1-0 win for the Three Lions at Euro 2024. The victory makes it a good start for Gareth Southgate’s side and continues Bellingham’s excellent form. The England star won La Liga and the Champions League last season with Real Madrid and is aiming for more silverware in Germany with the Three Lions.

THE BIGGER PICTURE
Bellingham spoke after the game and made sure to highlight the contribution of Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold. The 25-year-old started in midfield against Serbia, rather than his usual position at right-back, and Bellingham was full of praise for his performance and explained how it helped his own game against Serbia.

WHAT BELLINGHAM SAID
He told ITV Sport: “He makes it so easy for me because he can control the game so well defensively in that position. I know people talk a lot of rubbish but he’s so aggressive with that back to goal pressure and it really helped me as well because it meant I got a breather when he went out. I think we understand each other well with the ball, he wants to play positive all the time, he wants to play forward all the time. We accept as team-mates who have that kind of quality that we are going to lose the ball and that’s fine. We will win it back for each other and we will keep playing. I thought he was brilliant.”
