Following the 19-year-old's performance against Senegal in the World Cup round of sixteen on Sunday, Jude Bellingham has received praise from former English Premier League stars Gary Neville and Roy Keane.
Former Manchester United players Neville and Keane told ITV that Bellingham is a completely different kind of midfielder with the maturity of a 26, 27, even though he is only 19.
In Sunday's round of 16 matchup against Senegal, Bellingham stood out with a magnificent effort.
It's possible that his World Cup effort against the African champions may go down in history.
Neville noted that it's extremely uncommon to see a midfielder as at ease with the ball in his own half as he is in the attacking half.
He is physically very good, but I find it difficult to understand his maturity and bravery.
I haven't seen a young midfielder perform that well in years, according to Keane. That is typically demonstrated by a top-tier midfielder who is 26 or 27 years old.
England now has a date with France in the quarter finals of the tournament.
