Jude Bellingham saved England yesterday at the EUROS as his last-minute equalizer sent the game to extra time against Slovakia. Bellingham scored a great goal in the box after a header by Marc Guehi led the Real Madrid midfielder to perform an overhead kick that went into the net. England fans went wild, and in extra time, Harry Kane scored the second goal to make it 2-1. England won the match 2-1 and advanced to the quarterfinals, but not all were happy endings, as Bellingham may face consequences for his celebrations after his goal went in. Various sources in England report that UEFA’s Disciplinary Inspector will investigate “a potential violation of the basic rules of decent conduct by Jude Bellingham” following his late goal against Slovakia. English FA was also charged with a “lack of order or discipline by supporters” and lighting fireworks. It is unknown if he will miss the game against Switzerland in the quarterfinals, which is on Saturday at the Dusseldorf Arena.

After the game, Bellingham clarified that the gesture was not directed towards the Slovakia team, although many thought it was directed towards the Slovakia bench. On his X, Bellingham wrote, "An inside joke gesture towards some close friends who were at the game. Nothing but respect for how that Slovakia team played tonight." The English midfielder was very emotional and passionate after scoring the goal, which sent them into extra time and kept England in the tournament as they were a minute away from elimination.

Bellingham spoke after the match and described that his emotions after the goal were a bit of relief after lots of criticism was headed towards him and the England player for their unimpressive performances in the EUROS so far. After the game, in a press conference, he said, "Sometimes it feels like there's a pile-on from the fans... moments like tonight throw it back to some people."

England so far in the EUROS

England won their group with five points, but the fans were not impressed with their performances. England defeated Serbia in their first match of the tournament, but against Denmark and Slovenia, they were drawn. Against Denmark, the match ended 1-1, and against Slovenia, it ended 0-0. Now they will take on Switzerland, who finished second in the group with Germany, Hungary, and Scotland. They just eliminated Italy after beating them 2-0 in the Round of 16.
