Bellingham kept his nose at scoring with the England National Team

England won against Scotland the oldest national team match in history, the one that celebrated its 150th anniversary on Tuesday, and they did it with a goal from Jude Bellingham, who maintained the instinct of marking that he showed at the beginning of the season with Real Madrid.

Goals from Phil Foden, Harry Kane and Bellignham, who also provided an assist, marked a friendly duel, even if it had little goodwill, between the two teams that remember the most repeated and the longest national team game, the one played for the first time in 1862 at the nearby cricket field and is 150 years old and has 116 matches.

In Hampden Park, with a majority of Scottish people, the whistle for the English anthem is the order of the day, like Harry Maguire’s ironic oles and the tradition of these matches: let Scotland lose.

Because the Scots have not won this derby since 1999 and have to continue to wait after their good work in the qualifying phase for the Euro Cup, where they have five wins in five games, not translated into a duel that the Scottish coach, Steve. Clarke, described as a measure of how selection is made.

The truth was that Scotland was inferior to the English, who dominated almost the entire game and when they won the Scots kicks, the goals started to fall.

Foden, after a play started by Bellingham in the crescent area, scored first by deflecting a shot from Walker. The City midfielder read the play perfectly and put his foot in to make it 0-1.

Minutes later, Bellingham capitalized on a scandalous gift from Andy Robertson inside the area to score his second goal in a ‘Three Lions’ shirt and continue his fine scoring streak.

With the score 0-2 at half-time, England relaxed, bringing on Maguire and a lateral cross from Robertson, the Manchester United defender deflected the ball and put it in his own goal. A new dose of bad luck for the English.

It was there that Scotland had the best minutes and there was a poor direction from John McGinn to equalise. When, encouraged by their fans, the locals thought they would come for 20 minutes to push and find at least a tie, Eberechi Eze was afraid, failed in a one-on-one, and Harry Kane sentenced.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker was left alone in front of the goalkeeper after a pass from Bellingham and sealed the game.

1-3 and the Scots should continue to look for a long-awaited victory against their neighbors. It’s been 24 years since the last one.
