Jack Grealish left upset by what Jude Bellingham told him straight after he scored for England

Jack Grealish left upset by what Jude Bellingham told him straight after he scored for England

Jack Grealish has claimed that Liverpool target Jude Bellingham’s first World Cup goal greatly irritated him.

Grealish was asked about his goal while speaking to BBC Sport.

This is an experience that Grealish will never forget.

The midfielder completed England’s 6-2 hammering of Iran in the opening round of their campaign in Qatar.

The 27-year-old capitalized on Callum Wilson’s selfless pass back to tap the ball into an empty net.

However, Grealish’s happiness was nearly cut short when Jude Bellingham talked to him after he scored, which deeply irritated him.

Bellingham has been one of the most notable World Cup players.

The teenager has been phenomenal, and Grealish has acknowledged that his skill is “very frightening.”

Bellingham may not be destined to remain with Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga for much longer.

Liverpool has been rumored to be interested in the 19-year-old for some time, and PSG is now also reportedly keen on signing him.

If Bellingham moves to Liverpool, he will compete with Grealish at Manchester City.

The Dortmund youngster may already have the advantage over his Brummieadversary.

Grealish irritated with Bellingham after scoring World Cup goal

Grealish was shown a film of his goal and celebration against Iran during a BBC interview.

As soon as he stopped celebrating, Grealish said he was irritated by what Bellingham had said.

“Straight after that, Jude comes up to me and Jude goes, ‘You’re offside,’” Grealish said.

“And I like, ‘Nah’, so I was walking back, and for some reason I thought he already knew.

“The ref blew his whistle and half-looked at him to say, ‘Are you bantering?’, just coming up to me and killing my vibe like that.

It is unlikely that Bellingham intended to irritate Grealish by telling him he was offside.

However, the referee immediately validated the winger’s goal, much to his relief.

Since then, Grealish has played a minor role in Qatar, coming on as a substitute in every match.

He will be hopeful that Bellingham can continue to propel England forward as they face a challenging quarterfinal match against France.
