Bellingham, known for his athleticism and skill, delivered an unforgettable overhead kick to equalize just before the end of regular time, rescuing England from what seemed like a premature exit. The match had seen England struggle, falling behind early and failing to register a shot on target until the dying moments of normal time.

The drama escalated in extra time when substitute Eberechi Eze threaded a precise pass to Ivan Toney, whose looping effort found Harry Kane. Kane, England's talismanic striker, made no mistake in converting the chance, sealing the victory mere seconds into the additional period.

Manager Gareth Southgate and his team can breathe a sigh of relief as they advance to face Switzerland in the next round, scheduled for next Saturday.
