A late Jude Bellingham goal rescued England from a second consecutive defeat at Wembley as Gareth Southgate’s side salvaged a 2-2 draw against Belgium.

The Three Lions had trailed to a Youri Tielemans brace after Belgium punished two defensive mistakes in the first half - but Bellingham found an equaliser with the last kick of the game after England dominated the second half.

Aston Villa midfielder Tielemans scored twice before half-time, first punishing goalkeeper Jordan Pickford’s woeful clearance, before Romelu Lukaku’s perfect cross set up his second after Lewis Dunk’s slip.

Ivan Toney scored his first England goal from the penalty spot to equalise in the first half, but Bellingham saw two chances go begging while Phil Foden also narrowly shot wide.

And Bellingham’s perseverance was rewarded as the Real Madrid midfielder fired a 95th-minute equaliser. Follow live updates from England vs Belgium in tonight’s live blog, while you can get the latest odds and tips on the match, here:


England 1-1 Belgium

33 mins: Jarred Bowen once again threatening down the right, firing his effort over the bar.

GOAL DISALLOWED! England 1-1 Belgium

28 mins: GOAL DISALLOWED! After a thorough check, Jarred Bowen’s goal is ruled out for offside.

It remains all square.

GOAL! England 2-1 Belgium

26 mins: GOAL! Jarred Bowen heads in after a nicely worked corner from Englabd, which saw Lewis Dunk nod the ball back into the danger area from a deep Phil Foden delivery.

However, VAR are checking a potential offside...

England 1-1 Belgium

23 mins: Youri Tielemans slots a pass in behind looking to set Romelu Lukaku free - but Jordan Pickford, in a good starting position, is able to get off his line quickly and clear before any damage can be done.

England 1-1 Belgium

20 mins: CLOSE! Jeremy Doku drives at Joe Gomez down the right-hand side, cutting in on the Liverpool defender before firing a shot towards Jordan Pickford, which required a decent stop.

England then went right up the other end and looked to have put themselves in a good position as Jude Bellingham opened up to shoot, only for his effort to be blocked.

End-to-end stuff this.

GOAL! England 1-1 Belgium

17 mins: GOAL! Ivan Toney dispatches the spot-kick with aplomb!

A goal on his full England debut as the Brentford slots the ball into the bottom-left corner, sending Matz Sels the wrong way.

What a moment for the striker - exactly what he would have wanted as he looks to leave an impression on Gareth Southgate.

Will Castle26 March 2024 20:04

England 0-1 Belgium

15 mins: PENALTY!

Kobbie Mainoo slots in Ivan Toney brilliantly, and Jan Vertonghen barges in from behind to give away a stonewall penalty.

Toney claims the ball and will take the spot-kick.

GOAL! England 0-1 Belgium

11 mins: GOAL! It’s an absolute gift for Belgium, who take the lead at Wembley.

Jordan Pickford goes for an audacious pass towards Jarred Bowen but gets it all wrong, leaving him out of position and allowing Youri Tielemans to roll a smart finish into the gaping net.

A man injured and now a goal down. Not the start England wanted.

Will Castle26 March 2024 19:58

England 0-0 Belgium

9 mins: Oh dear. John Stones is signalling to the bench that he needs to come off.

That’s another England casualty, adding to their ever-growing injury list ahead of the Euros.

Joe Gomez is stripped and ready. The Liverpool man replaces Stones.

Will Castle26 March 2024 19:55

England 0-0 Belgium

8 mins: Jarred Bowen does brilliantly to take down a lofted ball and win a corner.

Phil Foden’s corner comes to nothing, though.
