Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham has responded to Mipo Odubeko’s post on Instagram after the striker made his debut for West Ham United.

Odubeko was in action for West Ham in their FA Cup third-round tie against Stockport County away from home on Monday evening.

The 18-year-old striker made his competitive debut for the Hammers, as the teenager came on as a substitute in the 90th minute.

The youngster, who joined the Hammers after leaving Manchester United in October 2019, has expressed his delight on Instagram at playing for the London club’s first team.

Bellingham – who moved to German club Dortmund from Birmingham City in the summer of 2020 and was described as “world class” by his teammate Jadon Sancho on Bundesliga.com in November 2020 – has praised Odubeko for his West Ham achievement.

West Ham star Declan Rice, who can also operate as a defender or as a midfielder, has also sent a message to Odubeko, 18, on Twitter.

Odubeko is very young and inexperienced, but the teenage striker has a bright future ahead of him and could become an important player for West Ham in the coming years.
