Jude Bellingham scored an amazing goal by himself for Real Madrid in the Champions League match against Napoli.
The Madrid team led by Carlo Ancelotti went to the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium on Tuesday night to play Napoli, the Serie A winners. They wanted to make it two wins in a row in the Winners League.
In the 12th minute, Leo Ostigard scored a goal that put Italy ahead. But in the 27th minute, Vinicius Jr. tied the game.
In the 34th minute, Bellingham scored a beautiful goal that made it 2-1 to Madrid.
After getting the ball, the player drove at the Napoli defense, held off two defenders, and put the ball in the back of the net.
As of this summer, Bellingham had moved from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid in a deal worth a starting fee of £88.5 million.
That was eight games ago, and since then, the 20-year-old has been one of Madrid’s best players, scoring seven goals and setting up two others.
Bellingham talked about the first time he heard that Madrid was interested back in June.
He said, “That was pretty normal. I had always known that England was interested.”
The news that Real Madrid was interested in me came as a bit of a surprise when my dad told me.
“I think that was maybe 12 to 15 months ago,” Bellingham said. I felt like my heart was going to stop when he said that. As a kid, you don’t think you’ll ever be able to play for a team like this.
“I don’t care about money. When I do things like this, I don’t think about money at all. I’ve never done that and never will. I play the game because I love it. When Borussia Dortmund told me it was okay, I talked to the people. I loved how the club made me feel. I couldn’t keep it from you.”
