Jude Bellingham gives Erling Haaland a kiss on the cheek after Borussia Dortmund win

Jude Bellingham gatecrashed an Erling Haaland post-match interview after Borussia Dortmund’s win at Besiktas on Wednesday… by giving him a kiss on the cheek.

The duo combined to devastating effect during the Champions League tie, with both on target in a 2-1 victory at the Turkish side to give them a perfect start in the group.

As Haaland was speaking to reporters after the game, he was caught unaware as Bellingham approached him from the side to give him a light hearted peck.

Bellingham instantly departed, with Haaland startled but smiling as the reporter then followed up by asking the striker: ‘Little kiss from Jude, how good was he tonight?’ with the Norwegian responding: ‘yeah, he’s amazing. He’s 18 and younger than me. What can I say? He’s amazing.’

Bellingham was pivotal in the victory by opening the scoring and then setting up Halland’s effort during the first half.

The England midfielder struck the opening goal at Vodafone Park in the 20th minute when he fired home an excellent strike into the bottom corner.

He later turned provider when his cut-back just before half-time allowed Haaland to convert a simple finish to double the lead.

Dortmund’s victory never looked in doubt with the home side only getting on the scoresheet deep into stoppage time with a Javi Montero header.

Haaland has now found the net 21 times in his last 17 Champions League matches but insists it is not a record he is keeping track of.

He continued: ‘I don’t really think too much about it. You know my love for the Champions League and how much I enjoy it, so I’m just enjoying the game.

I’m a goalscorer so I need to score goals, that’s my job, so yeah, that’s how it is.’

Despite the impressive start to the European campaign, Haaland admitted it was too early to rate Dortmund’s chances of winning the Champions League for the first time since 1997.

‘Yeah, we won. Of course. we let in one goal but we scored two, so I’m happy.’ he added.

‘I don’t think too much about that [winning Champions League]. I think game-by-game and then we will see.’
