Borussia Dortmund’s youngest Bellingham captain to score in the Champions League

Jude Bellingham also became the first midfielder in UEFA Champions League history to score in three consecutive games as a teenager.

Bellingham scored a goal and provided an assist for Raphael Guerreiro in a 4–1 win over Sevilla in Group G of the Champions League.

At 19 years and 98 days, Bellingham is also the youngest captain ever to score in a UEFA Champions League game. He also became the third youngest player to captain a team in the Champions League, behind Ruben Neves (18 years, 221 days) for Porto and Matthijs de Ligt (19 years, 51 days) for Ajax in 2018.

Bellingham signed for Borussia Dortmund from Birmingham in 2020. Bellingham was wanted in England and Germany even before he became Birmingham’s youngest ever player, aged 16 years and 38 days.
