Jude Bellingham’s top 5 most clutch goals of all time

30/06/24 19:43

Jude Bellingham is making an insane habit of scoring some incredible last minute goals. His latest has to be his best yet, as he pulled the entirety of England back from the edge of an embarrassing Round of 16 exit against Slovakia.

We thought we’d take a look at the midfielder's most clutch moments in his career so far for both club and country.

England 2-2 Belgium

It may have been a friendly game, but it was an important test for the England team ahead of the 2024 Euros. Belgium took the lead through Youri Tielemans before Ivan Toney converted a penalty just a few minutes later. Tielemans scored again before half time and England were left chasing the game.

It looked as if the game would end in defeat but up stepped Bellingham in the fifth minute of additional time to rescue a draw and save England. Despite the result, England performed well in that game, considering they were without a lot of their first choice players.

Real Madrid 2-1 Getafe

Bellingham started life in La Liga on fire, scoring four goals in his first three games. His fourth appearance for Madrid was against Getafe, and the hosts went behind after just 11 minutes to a Broja Mayoral strike.

Joselu managed to equalise just after half time, and the second 45 minutes were dominated by Real Madrid as they searched for a winner. Lucas Vazquez had a go from range in the fifth minute of additional time that was saved by the Getafe keeper, only for Bellingham to pick up the rebound and send the Bernabeu into bedlam.

Real Madrid 3-2 Barcelona

The second half of the 2023/24 season was a lot quieter than the first for Jude Bellingham. He missed a few games through injury and suspension but he made sure he was fully fit and ready for the El Classico in April. The game was an end-to-end spectacle.

Barcelona took the lead through Andreas Christensen before Vinicius Jr. converted a penalty. Fermin Lopez scored with 20 minutes to go to make it 2-1 to Barca, but Lucas Vazquez got Madrid back on level terms just four minutes later. The game looked destined to end in a draw, but Bellingham managed to get on the end of a Joeslu flick to smash home his effort past Marc Andre ter Stegen in the first minute of added time.

Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid

Yes. Bellingham did score two last minute winners against Barcelona in La Liga last season. This El Classico took place in October, while the 21-year-old was at the height of his form, but it was Barcelona who took the lead inside six minutes. In fact, Real Madrid really struggled to make much happen in the first half.

Bellingham found the net with 22 minutes left to play with a world class effort from range. After that point, the momentum shifted and the Englishman found his second with a close range volley after 90+2 minutes. That goal made it 13 goals in 13 games for Bellingham which is a seriously impressive figure.

England 2-1 Slovakia (AET)

By far his most important goal in his career, Bellingham kept England’s Euro 2024 hopes alive at the end of a pretty dire 90 minutes for the Three Lions. Slovakia took the lead as Ivan Schranz scored his third goal of the tournament after 25 minutes. Phil Foden thought he had equalised five minutes after half time, but the Manchester City midfielder was offside.

After a lot of possession, but nothing clear cut, Bellingham scored an incredible overhead kick in the fifth minute of added time to send the game to extra-time. Harry Kane scored the winner with his head after Ivan Toney headed a mis-hit shot towards the back post. The Three Lions proceeded to hold on for a stressful, but memorable, win.

England will face Switzerland in the Quarter-Final on Saturday 6th July.
