A GUTTED England fan has missed out on Jude Bellingham’s shirt after lugging an enormous homemade sign to San Marino.
Bellingham instead chose to give the shirt to a fan standing NEXT to the spectator with the sign asking for his shirt, but the Three Lions sensation did have good reason to.

The 18-year-old former Birmingham star spotted a ‘Redditch Blues’ England flag in the crowd.
And he ran over at full time to give his match worn shirt to a lucky Birmingham City fan who had made the journey over to San Marino.
Bellingham is a Birmingham hero and even had his shirt number retired by the club after moving to Borussia Dortmund.
It’s just unfortunate that standing right next to them was another big Bellingham fan holding a handmade sign asking for shirt.
The poor lad’s heart must have been racing as Bellingham walked over to his direction of the ground.
He would have thought the Dortmund star had spotted his ‘Jude can I have your shirt’ sign.
But instead Bellingham had clocked the Birmingham fan and opted to throw his shirt to them instead.
And when the lad with the sign realised he wasn’t the lucky recipient his arms sank and he turned away looking visibly upset.

Bellingham played the full 80 minutes in England’s 10-0 thrashing over minnows San Marino.
It could have been more though as Bellingham had the ball in the back of the net only for his effort to be chalked off by VAR.
The goal would have been the star’s first in a Three Lions shirt.
After a hugely impressive ten games in an England shirt, combined with his Bundesliga form, the midfielder has been linked with an £80million move to the Premier League.
Dortmund sporting director Sebastien Kehl even confirmed Liverpool’s interest last month.
But Jurgen Klopp’s side are set to face competition from Manchester United if they want to sign the Three Lions hero.
