Among bicycle kick heroes, Real Madrid’s golden boy, Jude Bellingham, will for long get a good mention based on his role in England’s victory against Slovakia on Sunday night.

His stunning acrobatic goal in the 95th minute of the EURO round of 16 match and another from a clinical header by Harry Kane stole the win for England.

At the beginning of the match, England had the most possession but Slovakia’s counter attack at the 35th minute led to the goal scored by Ivan Schranz.

Slovakia held the lead to half time and then played a defensive game from the beginning of second half.

England’s Coach Gareth Southgate made a series of substitution trying to break Slovakia team but to no avail.

Clock kept ticking mercilessly for him till the 95th minute when the magician Jude Bellingham broke the jinx with his bicycle kick that almost came from nowhere.
