England’s Jude Bellingham has risen to a new level of stardom, appearing in an adidas World Cup ad that features Lionel Messi, Karim Benzema and Stormzy.
The ad, which comes with the tagline “When football is everything, impossible is nothing” and also features Pedri from Barcelona, Heung-min Son from Tottenham. Serge Gnabry of Bayern Munich and Achraf Hakimi of Paris Saint-Germain.
Borussia Dortmund’s Bellingham has become a household name since moving from boyhood club Birmingham to Germany, where he played in the Bundesliga and Champions League.
The 19-year-old world-class player has broken a number of records at such a young age, with his performances seemingly securing him a place in Gareth Southgate’s midfield alongside Declan Rice.
And now it’s earned him international fame with adidas, taking center stage in a World Cup advert that’s sure to have fans buzzing for the start of the tournament on November 20.
Told by British grime sensation Stormzy, Bellingham is seen running down the stairs of a house before saying to Spaniard Pedri: “Dude, let’s go.”
Former El Clasico rivals Benzema and Messi then make an appearance, with Benzema ‘literally eating goals for breakfast’, as Stormzy puts it, before ‘one of a kind’ Messi plays table football with a younger version of himself.
The Spurs son then makes an appearance with his Hollywood smile, winning the line “with Sonny everything is brighter, while ‘no one is faster’ than Moroccan Hakimi”.

Next, Germany’s Gnabry shows off his ‘unbeatable’ style, before the world’s seven superstars line up at a bus stop in their adidas gear, waiting for a bus to the World Cup.
The music will likely excite fans too, with Opus life is life in the background, the same song that played in the background of Diego Maradona’s goosebumps warming up for Napoli in 1989.
The bus then rolls on, with the unmistakable driver announcing, “you can’t forget your boy Stormz” before heading to Qatar.
This may not be the only time Bellingham needs to pack, with strong links to a £100m+ move to Liverpool and Real Madrid.
