Borussia Dortmund may well have been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Manchester City last night, but Jude Bellingham’s performance over the two legs has grabbed most of the headlines.

The 17-year-old had a controversial goal ruled out by VAR at the Etihad in the first leg, but had a taste of revenge last night as he found the net on 15 minutes.

City were to fight back and advance to the semi-finals thanks to Riyad Mahrez’s penalty and Phil Foden’s long-range drive, but Bellingham can still hold his head high.
