Real Madrid reaped the rewards of Jude Bellingham’s clutch gene various times throughout the 2023/2024 campaign.

Having scored last-minute goals against Barcelona, Union Berlin, and Getafe, Bellingham is continuing to snatch victories from the jaws of defeats on the international stage.

Indeed, the England national team is similarly benefitting from Bellingham’s ability to thrive under pressure and score crucial goals, with the youngster most recently scoring an equalizing bicycle kick in stoppage time against Slovakia.

Phil Foden not short of praise for Bellingham

Now, Bellingham’s international teammate Phil Foden has waxed lyrical over Bellingham’s ability to constantly step up in crucial moments.

“I thought I was 30 seconds away from doing baby feeds at home. So thanks to Jude for that goal, thanks for doing it, he saved me there,” Foden humourously claimed via Daily Star (h/t Madrid Zone).

Saving England from a pre-mature exit in the Euros round of 16, Bellingham’s goal ensured the game went to extra time, where Harry Kane ultimately scored the winning goal.

Sharing a sentiment most Real Madrid fans hold, Foden claimed: “Honestly, it’s unbelievable, what Jude did. It just sums him up. He never gives up until the end.”

England manager Gareth Southgate has often been accused of shoehorning Bellingham and Foden into the same team, with some claiming they cannot coexist together.

Foden was asked if he believed he and Bellingham couldn’t play together, to which he replied, “I don’t agree, I feel we do work good together.”

With England confirming their ticket in the quarterfinals of the Euros, Bellingham will be looking to once again play an important role against Switzerland and put a bow on his incredibly successful campaign.

Just in: Real Madrid’s defensive target picks up fresh injury

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

Mario Gila picks up fresh injury

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
