Jude Bellingham, Real Madrid’s star signing, continues to make headlines with his remarkable performances for Los Blancos. In a recent clash against Getafe, the England international achieved a milestone by equaling a 15-year-old record set by Cristiano Ronaldo, scoring a last-minute winner. His instinctive reaction seized the opportunity, preserving Real Madrid’s undefeated streak in La Liga this season.
Bellingham has now scored in his first four La Liga fixtures, a feat previously accomplished only by the goal-scoring sensation, Ronaldo, when he joined Madrid from Manchester United in 2009. This season, Bellingham has found the back of the net against Athletic Bilbao, Celta Vigo, and Getafe, in addition to a brace scored away at Almeria. Fifteen years ago, Ronaldo netted goals against Villarreal, Espanyol, Deportivo la Coruna, and secured a double against Xerex.
Real Madrid’s head coach, Carlo Ancelotti, expressed his admiration for Bellingham’s quality and was particularly surprised by the young Englishman’s prolific goal-scoring start in Spain. Ancelotti noted Bellingham’s professionalism and adaptability, highlighting the squad’s high level of professionalism as a contributing factor to his success.
Jude Bellingham Equals Cristiano Ronaldo’s 15-Year-Old Record at Real Madrid
Ancelotti stated, “He can get to 15 goals because he did it with Dortmund. He excels without the ball and doesn’t give it away. He often gets into the box and breaks lines. He’s in almost constant attacking movement, and that’s why he has scored all those goals.”
As Bellingham continues to impress for Real Madrid, he will also aim to carry his exceptional club form into international matches, with the Three Lions facing Ukraine and Scotland in upcoming fixtures.
