Watch Jude Bellingham score stunning volley for Borussia Dortmund at Besiktas as fans purr over 18-year-old Englishman
JUDE BELLINGHAM scored a special volley for Borussia Dortmund as they kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 away win at Besiktas.
The 18-year-old England international continued his incredible rise since joining the German outfit with the second European goal of his career.
A crossfield ball was floated over to Belgian wingback Thomas Meunier, who immediately laid it into the path of the former Birmingham City man.
He controlled the ball on his chest before rifling the ball through the legs of Besiktas keeper Ersin Destanoglu to give the visitors the lead after just 20 minutes.
And it got even better for Bellingham before the break as he was instrumental in Dortmund's second goal.
The England star was the most alert from a throw-in, picking up the ball, jinking past a defender and squaring it for Erling Haaland to tap home.
Bellingham could have had another in the second half but his effort was thwarted by Destanoglu.
Besiktas pulled one back in stoppage time through the head of defender Francisco Montero, but Dortmund held on for the victory.

Reacting to the teenager's sensational display, one fan said: "Best youngster in the world."
While a Liverpool fan added: "That celebration was cold. Would love him at Anfield, such a promising talent."
And others feel it is time he was given a regular place in England's side, with manager Gareth Southgate currently preferring midfielders Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips over the Dortmund man.
One person said: "[Bellingham] Should start for England ahead of Phillips, he is much more dynamic, can do what Phillips does and more."
Another user agreed, adding: "This is what you’d get picking him [Bellingham] over Phillips in the England team, as harsh as it may be on Phillips who has done well for England."
