Bellingham scores, gets serenaded in his World Cup debut

And it was his first goal for England. England captain Harry Kane says “no better place to do it.” The England fans who made their way to the first World Cup in the Middle East certainly enjoyed it. They sang the Beatles classic “Hey Jude” to the 19-year-old Bellingham after the goal.
