England will have to play without the midfielder in their upcoming Euro qualifiers.

Jude Bellingham will miss Real Madrid’s last game before the international break with a shoulder injury.

The England international dislocated his shoulder during his side’s victory over Rayo Vallecano last week. Real Madrid have now confirmed the young midfielder will be unavailable against Valencia on Saturday.

The club’s statement reads: “After the tests carried out today on our player Jude Bellingham, he has been diagnosed with a case of anterior instability of the left shoulder, as a consequence of his recent dislocation. Bellingham is ruled out for today’s match against Valencia.”

Bellingham was included in Carlo Acnelotti’s matchday squad for the game on Friday. However, it seems the club have decided to rest the England international until the end of the international break.

Bellingham is called up for England’s upcoming Euro qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia. The Three Lions could force the 20-year-old to travel to their camp for further tests by the national team’s doctors.

Bellingham is expected to regain full fitness for Real Madrid’s match against Cadiz on November 26.
