ENGLAND star Jude Bellingham has explained the brilliant celebration between himself and Jordan Henderson after the goal against Senegal.
The Liverpool midfielder scored the opening goal in England’s 3-0 win in the World Cup round of 16 after being set up by Bellingham.

Bellingham has explained the celebration from his point of view
After the goal, Henderson ran over to the 19-year-old to celebrate, initially pointing to him and then pressing their foreheads together.
Bellingham seemed to be a bit unsure at first as the 32-year-old appeared to be putting a bit more effort into the press.
However, after a hilariously drawn-out rubing of heads, he went on to help England seal their quarter-final match against France.
When asked about the celebration, Bellingham said on the England Instagram page: “To be honest he got so, like, close and I was thinking, right, if this is what we are going to do we have to commit, don’t we?
“So I went and he went really hard you know, proper hard, like right there.
“And that’s why my back’s arched like that, because I am thinking like he’s proper hard here and he’s proper close.
“So I kind of just had to turn the core on a bit, lean forward and get into a bit of more of a comfortable position.
“But it was a good moment.
“Something that, you know, lives forever, them kind of celebrations and hopefully, people will be talking about it for a long time.”
Henderson loved the explanation from Bellingham and replied to the video with four laughing emojis.
Former England striker Ian Wright also enjoyed the video as he replied with laughing faces and love hearts.
