"I don't want to big him up because he's still young, but he's one of the most gifted players I've ever seen," Foden told ITV.

"I don't see any weaknesses in his game, I think he’s got everything and I'm sure he's going to be the best midfielder in the world."

BBC presenter and Former England star Gary Lineker took to Twitter to declare his admiration for the young midfielder.

"Goodness me, @BellinghamJude is unbelievably good. He's the leader in this team. His parents must be so proud. Love him," stated Lineker.

Ex-Manchester United star Roy Keane spoke in the same vein, saying he believes Bellingham "is going to be a superstar".

"When it's a bit tight you need a midfielder to run and produce a bit of magic, and that's what Bellingham did there. Brilliant," Keane told ITV.

"This is what you want from a midfielder, powerful, strong, anticipation, a little bit of luck but it's game over.

"He's going to be a superstar. We keep using the word but maturity, he plays like he's played 100 times for England.

"I've not seen a young midfielder perform like that for years. His maturity, his decision making, which is huge for a midfielder, the kid has everything."
