Erling Haaland reacts as Jude Bellingham breaks two Champions League records

Erling Haaland hailed ‘amazing’ Jude Bellingham after the Borussia Dortmund and England midfielder broke two Champions League records in the victory over Besiktas.

Bellingham, 18, fired the Bundesliga side ahead with a superb goal on 20 minutes, and provided the assist for Haaland’s second on the stroke of half-time.

Besiktas’ Javi Montero scored a late header to set up a nervy finish, but Dortmund held on to begin their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win in Group C.

Bellingham has thrived at Borussia Dortmund since his £25m move from English Championship club Birmingham City last year, with his impressive form earning him a place in England’s squad for Euro 2020.

The teenager has continued where he left off this season and became the youngest Englishman to score away from home in the Champions League when he netted in Turkey.

The strike also saw Bellingham surpass France and PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe as the youngest player in the tournament’s history to score in consecutive Champions League games.

Haaland was looking back on Borussia Dortmund’s victory over Besiktas when Bellingham interrupted the interview by kissing the Norway striker on the cheek.

‘It’s so much fun to win football matches with Borussia Dortmund. We have to continue like this.’
