Eintracht Frankfurt 2 Dortmund 3: Jude Bellingham scores in amazing second-half fight-back from two goals down

JUDE BELLINGHAM was on the scoresheet as Borussia Dortmund produced a thrilling comeback to win at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The England midfielder is being watched by a host of Premier League big boys as they eye a transfer swoop.


And the 18-year-old further strengthened his credentials on Saturday by getting on the scoresheet in the Bundesliga side’s thrilling fight back.

Dortmund found themselves 2-0 down at half time after a quickfire double from Rafael Borre.

They held onto that lead until the final 20 minutes – and that is when the action really began.

Thorgan Hazard pulled a goal back before Bellingham struck an equaliser in the closing stages.

He scored with a header just seconds prior to Mahmoud Dahoud hitting a last-minute winner.

That result helped Dortmund to close the gap on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

The table-toppers suffered a shock home defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Friday.

Bellingham and his team-mates are now just six points behind Bayern.

That strike was the former Birmingham City star’s fourth goal in the German top-flight.

Bellingham is believed to have a £90million price tag on his head, with Liverpool one of those keen to secure his services.

And Anfield legend Jamie Carragher has singled out the talented teen as the one player Jurgen Klopp’s team should sign to strengthen their squad.

The legendary centre-back was asked in a Q&A on Twitter who he would like Liverpool to bring in during the January transfer window. 

And he replied: “Jude Bellingham & the summer window is fine for me!”
