Jude Bellingham has been named the best wonderkid in football by Goal.com.
Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jude Bellingham has won the NXGN 2022 award given to the best young player born on or after January 1, 2003, by Goal.com.


"The 18-year-old has emerged as the finest young midfielder on the planet since joining Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2020, with Bellingham capable of dictating the tempo of matches at the very highest level of the European game," Goal.com wrote.

"With close control any player would kill for, and the self-confidence of a seasoned title-winner, Bellingham has all the ingredients a modern-day coach would want, particularly given his goal and assist numbers have shot up this season."



There are two other Bundesliga players in the top five, with Bayer Leverkusen's Florian Wirtz and Bayern München's Jamal Musiala in second and fourth place, respectively.

Borussia Dortmund's Youssoufa Moukoko (8), Augsburg's Ricardo Pepi (10), Gladbach's Luca Netz (15), RB Leipzig's Ilaix Moriba (17) and Stuttgart's Wahid Faghir (38) made the top 50 as well.
