Jude Bellingham equaled Cristiano Ronaldo’s third record with a brilliant solo goal against Napoli.

The England superstar has already been warmly welcomed by fans after leaving Borussia Dortmund to join the La Liga giants in a £115million deal this summer.

The 20-year-old midfielder has scored eight goals in nine appearances for Real Madrid and inspired the team to several crucial late wins.

Despite only playing for the club for a few weeks, Bellingham has already matched Madrid legend Ronaldo’s many stunning landmarks and feats.

In August, he made his league debut and scored in a 2-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.

The former Birmingham City ace then continued his hot start with a brace against Almeria.

Bellingham sealed victory in the third game with a late goal against Celta Vigo.

This makes him the first player since Ronaldo to score in Real Madrid’s first three La Liga games.

However, Bellingham was not done there, scoring the winning goal in the 95th minute on his Madrid debut at home against Getafe.

It’s a feat that matches the Portuguese icon’s tally of goals in Real Madrid’s first four games.

Bellingham has now equaled another feat achieved by Ronaldo after his wonder goal in Tuesday’s 3-2 win over Napoli in the Champions League.

The youngster featured in a 1-0 home win over Union Berlin in their first group match two weeks ago.

He has now become the first player since Ronaldo in 2009 to score in Real Madrid’s first two Champions League games.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner emulated former France star Christian Karembeu’s feat 11 years ago.

Bellingham will be hoping to add to his tally when Real Madrid host Osasuna in La Liga on Sunday.
