Jude Bellingham


Top English clubs are engaged in a bidding war for 19-year-old Jude Bellingham, who was one of the standout performers at the recently concluded 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Manchester United, for example, is said to be offering £100 million ($121 million) for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder to join them. Other teams interested in him include Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid, according to EuroSport.


What is official is HS2 Limited’s announcement that the Curzon 2 bridge will be named in honor of Bellingham’s outstanding performance at the World Cup. After shooting the ball several times at the back of the net during England’s match against Iran, Bellingham became the country’s second youngest World Cup goal scorer. He follows in the footsteps of Michael Owen, the youngest player to score on such a grand scale.

According to the Daily Mail, the 150-meter-long bridge, which would be part of a skyline, is being built in the England soccer star’s hometown. The railway bridge designs were unveiled this month during England’s World Cup quarter-final match against France. The viaduct that leads to Birmingham’s Curzon Street station will also be joined by an impressive 25-meter-high curved truss.

Kay Hughes, Design Director at HS2 Limited, stated that the goal of constructing such a bridge is to resurrect the city’s industrial heritage. Bellingham is expected to embody the vision and cultural pride that have long existed in Birmingham.

Hughes also stated that the skyline will include a light installation created by British artist Liz West. The installation will be called ‘Out of the Blue,’ after the city’s traditional colors. He went on to say that the goal is to portray Birmingham’s legacy as an iconic and thriving commercial hub worthy of its status.

He explained that it is not only important to recognize the city’s industrial heritage, but also to position it as a tourism hub with a breathtaking skyline that will leave a lasting impression on the public.

The essence of the design, according to artist West, is to capture the symbolism and abstract meanings shared by people, spaces, and color, which represent Birmingham’s aspirations and experiential moments. She explained that the use of color and light is intended to create a sense of belonging and movement for passengers, whether in the train or in public spaces.

HS2 Ltd’s Head of Art and Culture Anne Mullins said the Bellingham Bridge after its completion will become an important landmark in England whose artistic architecture will be celebrated for years to come.
