Top 10 Bellingham goals ranked – Our picks

10. Birmingham 4-5 Leeds (2019/20 EFL Championship)

It is fitting that opening our list is a goal that Bellingham scored for Birmingham City, where it all began for him. This particular strike, unfortunately, came in a 5-4 defeat for Birmingham against Leeds United in the EFL Championship, but Bellingham still showed maturity beyond his years by taking one touch in the area before neatly placing the ball into the bottom corner.

9. Borussia Dortmund 1-2 Manchester City (2020/21 UEFA Champions League)

This was Bellingham's first-ever goal in the UEFA Champions League, and it was extra special that it came against such a formidable opponent in Manchester City. Playing for Borussia Dortmund, Bellingham turned his man before placing the ball into the top corner to open the scoring, with the City goalkeeper getting a hand on it but not enough to keep it out of his net.

8. Borussia Dortmund 4-3 Augsburg (2022/23 Bundesliga)

In Bellingham's final season at Dortmund, he opened the scoring in a 4-3 thriller at home to Augsburg in the Bundesliga. The midfielder twisted and turned his defender inside and out on the edge of the box, before placing beautifully into the bottom corner.

7. Borussia Dortmund 5-0 Stuttgart (2022/23 Bundesliga)

Another wonderful Bellingham goal from the 2022/23 Bundesliga season falls on our list, this time his second goal of the game as Dortmund thrashed VfB Stuttgart 5-0 at home. He nonchalantly shrugged off his defender before curling beautifully into the bottom corner from the edge of the box, as the Yellow Wall started to believe that they could put in a title charge, only to be pipped on the last day by Bayern Munich.

6. Borussia Dortmund 3-2 Hoffenheim (2021/22 Bundesliga)

Ranking sixth on our list is Bellingham's delightful finish at home against TSG Hoffenheim, which opened his account for the 2021/22 campaign in style. Indeed, the Dortmund star brought a fizzed ball down with his knee, before unleashing a half-volley on his weaker left foot into the far corner to put his team in front.

5. Borussia Dortmund 2-4 Rangers (2021/22 UEFA Europa League)

Another Bellingham strike from the edge of the box features on our list: his goal in a 4-2 defeat in the UEFA Europa League against Rangers FC. This was a particularly impressive goal, as Bellingham struck the ball first time on his weaker left foot, and it curled into the corner.

4. England 6-2 Iran (2022 FIFA World Cup)

This is the only England goal that features on our list, but it was an extra special one for Bellingham as it was his first in a Three Lions shirt. Indeed, he showed off his physicality and towering presence by jumping highest and looping a header over the Iran goalkeeper to score England's first goal of the 2022 FIFA World Cup and give them the lead in Qatar, in a match that they went on to win 6-2.

3. Napoli 2-3 Real Madrid (2023/24 UEFA Champions League)

It has taken a while for us to reach a Bellingham goal in a Real Madrid shirt, but this one was truly sublime in the Champions League against SSC Napoli. The midfielder went on a rampaging solo run before beautifully curling the ball into the far corner to give Los Blancos the lead against the Serie A holders at the time in Naples.

2. Barcelona 1-2 Real Madrid (2023/24 La Liga)

Another Madrid goal comes runner-up on our list, and it was certainly a memorable one in the El Clasico derby for Bellingham. Indeed, in his first El Clasico, he produced a stunning long-range strike that flew into the top corner to draw Madrid level against FC Barcelona at the Nou Camp, before netting the winner in injury time in La Liga.

1. Arminia Bielefeld 1-3 Borussia Dortmund (2021/22 Bundesliga)

Topping our list takes us back to a brilliant Bellingham solo goal for Dortmund away at Arminia Bielefeld in the 2021/22 Bundesliga season. Bellingham checked inside one defender on the edge of the box, before beating two more defenders and delicately dinking the ball with his weaker left foot over the rushing goalkeeper, in a goal that really put him on the map as one of the most talented midfield players in world football.
