Dayot Upamecano doesn’t count “talented” Bellingham as a threat

France plays England in the quarter-finals stage at Al Bayt Stadium on Saturday with Dortmund's Jude Bellingham being among the key players in the England squad so far. However, the Bayern defender doesn't consider him a threat.

Ahead of the reigning World Cup champions' clash with their bitter rivals,


, Upamecano was asked about England's key midfielder. Despite admitting the 19-year-old is very talented, the Bayern defender doesn't believe he be much of a threat to


midfield line.

Upamecano has said:

“I wouldn't say Jude Bellingham is a threat but they have a very strong team. I know Bellingham: Bayern versus Dortmund, it's war. He has got real talent and is a very good player, is gaining in experience as he is playing in all the matches so I think it will be a really good fight in midfield. We will use our experienced players, (Adrien) Rabiot and (Antoine) Griezmann, and count on them.”

On England's other top players,

“Bukayo Saka likes to cut inside. We'll have to make as few errors as possible. We'll be ready. Marcus Rashford is a very good player. I'm not going to be focused on one player though. England have some really good players, a really good bench for sure, and have a lot of players who can make the difference. We are going to have to be careful and focused. It is going to come down to details so we are going to have to make the least amount of mistakes as possible and I think that team will win the game.”
