England midfielder and 19-year-old Jude Bellingham has joined an elite list of the World Cup’s youngest scorers in history after scoring against Iran.

Bellingham became the 12th youngest scorer at a World Cup in history, nodding Luke Shaw’s cross home in exquisite fashion to give England a 1-0 lead against Iran.

The Birmingham City Academy graduate joined German side Borussia Dortmund in July 2020 for a £20.5m fee and has since become one of Europe’s most sought after players, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Real Madrid fighting for his signature.

The header was Bellingham’s first international goal for the Three Lions, joining Michael Owen as the only teenagers to score for England at a World Cup. He also became the first player born after 2000 to score in the competition.
