Maguire, who was replaced by Mark Guehi (Crystal Palace) in the 1st minute of the second half,
failed to properly clear a cross in the 22nd minute of the second half,
resulting in an own goal, with Scotland trailing by a goal.
However, in the 36th minute of the second half, Bellingham, who beat two defenders behind the penalty arc,
delivered an exquisite penetration pass to Harry Kane in the penalty area,
Kane calmly finished with his left foot, giving England a two-goal lead again.
This is Kane’s 59th goal in his 86th international match in his career.
This game was the 116th meeting between the two teams.
England leads the opponent with 49 wins, 26 draws, and 41 losses.
The match between the two teams dates back to November 30, 1872.
It was a scoreless draw at the time, and this match is recognized as the world’s first match between national teams.
England, who lost 1-2 to France in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Qatar World Cup,
has since been cruising with 5 wins and 1 draw.
For England, it is good to see the growth of Bellingham, born in 2003,
who is currently considered the best midfielder in the world.
According to soccer statistics media Squawka, Bellingham, who scored 1 goal and 1 assist,
also won six duels and gave perfect scores in all areas, including the front and back lines.
On the other hand, Maguire, whose position in his team has recently decreased significantly,
recorded an own goal and his stock price fell further.
Scottish fans cheered and mocked Maguire when he scored an own goal.
England national team coach Gareth Southgate raised his voice in support of Maguire at the post-match press conference.
Coach Southgate said, “Scotland fans can behave like that.
I have nothing to complain about,” but added, “To be honest, this is a phenomenon that has arisen because Maguire has been treated outrageously for a long time.”
He then pointed out, “I have never seen a player treated like this before.
Not only Scottish fans but also our (England) commentators and critics are creating more things to talk about than what I saw (Maguire) in person.”
Harry Maguire, who had not been employed at Manchester United (Manchester United/England) since the appointment of coach Eric Tenhag,
even suffered the humiliation of returning the captain’s armband last month.
There were rumors of a transfer to West Ham (England) this summer,
but when the transfer process was delayed due to wage issues,
West Ham withdrew and he remained at Manchester United for the time being.
