Borussia Dortmund youngster Jude Bellingham has just been subbed on by England manager Gareth Southgate in the game against Croatia, and he’s made history in the process.
The 17-year-old is now the youngest player ever to appear at the European Championships, adding to a long list of other impressive records he’s achieved in his short career so far…

The teenager, formerly of Birmingham City, clearly has the world at his feet if he can continue to progress as he has.
Bellingham looked superb for Dortmund in the season just gone, and he’s fully earned his chance to shine at Euro 2020 this summer.
England fans can be excited about watching Bellingham for years to come, as he joins other hugely promising young talents like Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka and Mason Greenwood coming through at the moment.
