In a comical post-match incident, England midfielder Jude Bellingham found himself at the centre of an embarrassing mishap after the national team’s game against Ukraine.
The match had ended in a 1-1 draw, with Bellingham playing for 65 minutes before being substituted for Marcus Rashford.
As the players exited the Stadion Wroclaw in Poland after the final whistle, Bellingham made an awkward blunder.
Without realizing it, the 20-year-old midfielder hopped onto what he thought was the team bus parked at the front of the car park.
To his surprise, it turned out to be the Ukrainian team’s coach.

Bellingham had to make an amusing U-turn, walking back down the stairs as his teammates and fans looked on.
Eventually, he was guided to the correct bus where his England teammates were waiting.
Jude Bellingham has been the star man for Real Madrid so far this season, scoring a last-gasp winner against Getafe in La Liga.
While the incident left Bellingham red-faced for a moment, it provided a lighthearted and memorable post-match moment for fans and observers.
