England's Jude Bellingham may be facing a potential ban for the Euro 2024 quarter-finals.


The 21-year-old has been a pivotal player for the Three Lions in the tournament, scoring two crucial goals as England push for European glory.


His most recent goal was one of England's most dramatic moments in recent memory, rescuing them from what seemed like a perilous situation against Slovakia on Sunday.


After Slovakia's Ivan Schranz put them ahead in the first half, England struggled until late in normal time. Employing a strategic "plan B" referenced earlier in the week by Southgate, England capitalized on a long throw-in that led to a header and a stunning overhead kick from the young player, beating Martin Dubravka in goal.


England eventually progressed to the quarter-finals thanks to Harry Kane's extra-time winner, but now the availability of their last-minute hero, Bellingham, is in question.


Following his sensational equalizer, Bellingham's celebration included a gesture that has landed him in potential trouble.  He could face a one-match ban, possibly ruling him out of the upcoming clash against Switzerland.


UEFA has confirmed they are investigating the incident for a potential breach of conduct rules by Bellingham during the match.


Despite having a squad packed with top talent, including several world-class players, nearly every member of England's starting lineup has faced scrutiny. Bellingham, despite his status as a star at Real Madrid, is no exception. However, Southgate may need to explore other options if the youngster is indeed suspended.


If Bellingham is unavailable, it could present an opportunity for Cole Palmer to make his first start in a major tournament, having impressed as a substitute so far. Phil Foden might also step into an advanced midfield role, a position he excels in for Manchester City, with Anthony Gordon or Eberechi Eze potentially filling the left flank.
