Jude Bellingham scored an amazing goal in Real Madrid’s 3-2 victory over Napoli.

Bellingham scored the second goal of the night, and it was brilliant.

The 20-year-old went on a mazy run from midfield, and raced his way into the penalty area before flicking the ball over the outstretched foot of Leo Ostigard and side-footing into the back of the net.

Interestingly, the goal was scored at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, and also led to comparisons being made between the goal and the legendary goal Maradona scored against England.

Speaking after the game to Movistar, Bellingham was asked if his goal was as good as the one the legendary Argentine number ten scored against England, but 20-year-old midfielder said: “That’s a bit too much!

“It was a nice goal. From what I’ve seen on YouTube and documentaries, his [Maradona’s] quality was a bit more than mine, or a lot more. I’m just trying to contribute in a Jude way.

“It could be one of my best goals, we were against a great team in a great stadium. I’m happy to have scored it, it’s three points and it’s important to continue with this pace.”
