Watch Jude Bellingham smash in his first Bundesliga goal as Dortmund down Stuttgart to keep Champions League hopes alive

JUDE BELLINGHAM lasered another remarkable milestone with his first Bundesliga goal.

The England midfielder, 17, lashed home from the edge of the area as Borussia Dortmund kept alive their slim hopes of a top-four finish with a 3-2 comeback win at Stuttgart.

Euro 2020 hopeful Bellingham showed again he has it all with an instinctive low drive to make it 1-1 70 seconds after the interval.

The former Birmingham City star had already netted on his Dortmund debut, a 5-0 German Cup win over Duisburg on September 14.

And he was controversially denied what might have been a crucial Champions League strike in last Tuesday's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.

Bellingham nipped the ball off Etihad keeper Ederson and slotted into the net but was penalised for a foul, sparking huge protests and earning himelf a yellow card.

This time, though, he was far less animated – despite the goal standing.

He was too anxious to get the ball back rather than celebrate, knowing that Dortmund were well adrift of the top four and needed to push on for victory.

Yet the fact Edin Terzić's men did snatch all three points was, in the end, down to another teenager bagging his first-ever goal for Dortmund.

In just his third Bundesliga match, 19-year-old sub Ansgar Knauff fired an 80th-minute winner.

The German youth international winger picked the ball up on the fringe of the area and threaded a clever shot past two defenders and Stuttgart keeper Gregor Kobel.

Bellingham's own moment to remember had earlier cancelled out a 17th-minute looping header from Sasa Kalajdzic.


Marco Reus soon followed up Bellingham's leveller by putting Dortmund in front.

And just two minutes after Daniel Didavi thought he had rescued a point for mid-table Stuttgart, Terzik struck in style.

But triumphant Dortmund are still six points off fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt and 19 behind leaders Bayern Munich.
