Bellingham avoids Euro suspension for lewd gesture

Jude can be on the pitch against Switzerland.

England star Jude Bellingham is available to play against Switzerland tomorrow’s ¼ final after being handled a 1-game suspension ban and a 30,000 euro fine by the governing body for an obscene gesture made in their 1/8 final triumph against Slovakia.

Jude celebrated his extra time equalizer with forced overtime in the past weekend by kissing his hand and appearing to grab his crotch.

Jude shared after the match that it was “an inside-joke gesture towards some close friends who were watching from the stands,” but the football governing body commission announced that he had “violated the basic rules of decent conduct.”

That means that in the next year if Bellingham do something like what he did in the game against Slovakia, he will serve 1-match ban.

All 26 English footballers trained today as Gareth Southgate’s team continued their preparation for the ¼ final in 24 hours.
