Right after being named the youngest ever player at a European Championship, English youngster Jude Bellingham was given a congratulatory message from his Borussia Dortmund teammate Erling Haaland, even Australia casino online dropped their congratulations for the player.
The England international was subbed in late in the second half of the Three Lions' Euro 2020 opening match against Croatia on Sunday afternoon, he replaced Harry Kane in the closing stages of the game which ended 1-0.
Manchester City star Raheem Sterling scored the only goal of the game against the runner-up of the 2018 World Cup, and in the process the Borussia Dortmund star made history.
The Dortmund youngster substitution in the late second half of the game meant that he is now the youngest ever player to play at a Euros, at age of 17 years and 345 days, defeating the previous record set by Holland's Jetro Willems (18 years and 71 days) in 2012.
Dortmund's red-hot striker, who kept a close eye on his teammate, praised the England international on social media right after the game.
Tagging the new-rising star of the Signal Iduna Park on Twitter, Haaland wrote: ‘Congratulations Jude Bellingham. Top guy, top talent, top player. Well deserved.’
While Bellingham replied with a 'Thank you brother' to the Norway international, whose country failed to make it into the Euro Championships, but that was not the only love he received on social media.
Bellingham, however, might not be keeping this record of the youngest ever player at a European Championship for long, as he could come close to losing it this weekend.
Poland's star Kacper Kozlowski is almost a hundred days younger than the England midfielder and will be setting a new record if he can register an appearance for the team.
While he is not a starter in the team, he has been able to register three caps for the national team. After a disappointing 2-1 loss at the hands of Slovakia in their opening Euro 2020 game, the youngster might be given a chance in Poland's next game against Spain this Saturday, with jeux de machines a sous dropping odds for the game.
Either way, this doesn’t change the fact that Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham, who was impressive for the German giants in the Bundesliga for the 2020/21 campaign, broke and set a new record in European Championships.
Bellingham will be hoping to make an appearance in England’s next match which will see them pitched against Scotland on Friday.
