The 19-year-old now has four Champions League goals, meaning he replaces Wayne Rooney, Phil Foden, Theo Walcott and Jadon Sancho as the record holder for most goals as an English teenager in the competition.

It is also Bellingham’s 18th appearance in the competition. again, the most by any English teenager.

The goal came moments after Reus nearly put the visitors ahead in a game which saw them effectively stifle Pep Guardiola’s men.

City managed to get level thanks to a superb long-range effort from John Stones.

Erling Haaland, who has already scored 12 goals for City, remained silent apart from hitting the post with an effort from a tight angle.

As a former Dortmund player, Haaland isn’t getting much joy from traveling fans, who have been heard giving a wry chant at their former striker.

“Not much to shout about from Erling Haaland. He worked hard, he came deep to try and win the ball for City,” Adrian Durham said in commentary for talkSPORT.

“Sometimes Dortmund fans would sing words like ‘you’re not very good and you know you are’.” I can’t repeat the actual words they used.

“Obviously, that’s ironic!”
