Be it for club or country, Jude Bellingham cannot stop scoring.
Having plundered five goals in four games for Real Madrid in La Liga in his debut season, the 20-year-old midfielder is now doing it for his country on the international stages.
Starting in the No. 10 role for the Three Lions against rivals Scotland in the 150th Anniversary Heritage Match at Hampden Park, the Real Madrid phenom found the back of the net to double his team’s lead.
Pouncing on a loose ball inside the box, Bellingham unleashed a powerful strike that left Angus Gunn in the Scotland goal with no chance.

It is Bellingham’s second goal for the England national team, coming in his 26th appearance for Gareth Southgate’s side.
The midfield prodigy is in contention to win the Golden Boy award and the Kopa Trophy and the way he has begun the season shows that he is a worthy contender for the prizes.
Real Madrid very happy with future star Endrick, eagerly awaiting his arrival in 2024 – Romano
Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.
Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.
Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.
Real Madrid impressed by Endrick
Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.
The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.
And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.
Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.
Endrick also learning new languages
Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.
The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.
As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.
Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
