Jude Bellingham was left frustrated when he was denied a goal for Borussia Dortmund in their 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.

The teenage midfielder thought he had scored in the first half of the Champions League quarter-final first leg as he nicked the ball off goalkeeper Ederson and stroked the ball into an empty net.

Bellingham got a toe to the ball moments before Ederson completed his swing, with the City goalkeeper connecting only with the bottom of the England international’s boot.

But the referee, Ovidiu Hategan, ruled it a foul and as he had blown his whistle before the ball went over the line, the VAR on duty was unable to reverse the decision.

It wasn’t long before ‘robbed’ began trending on Twitter and Dortmund atar Jadon Sancho, who missed the game through injury, reacted with dismay.

He posted the message ‘the ref needs checking’ on his Twitter page alongside a face palm emoji.

Dortmund, who were trailing 1-0 at the time, went on to lose 2-1 with Phil Foden scoring a later winner for the home side.

Speaking after the game, Bellingham expressed his dismay at the decision.

“I definitely think I won the ball fairly,” Bellingham told BT Sport.

“It’s a bit frustrating at a time when they’ve got so many cameras and so many TVs watching the game that they don’t wait for me to put it in the net and then check it.

“It’s football and it’s life, we have to get on with it, really.

“All I got told was that I got booked and it’s going to be a free-kick for them. I think they should have checked it but apparently I had my studs up, caught the goalie and it was a foul.”
