A strange incident happened to Mason Mount in England’s 7-0 win against Montenegro as the Three Lions sealed their passage into Euro 2020.

Mount started the Euro qualifying game at Wembley and was substituted in the second half for Liverpool’s Joe Gomez.

Surprisingly, a section of the crowd at Wembley started to boo as Mount made his way off the pitch. However, the boos weren’t targeted at Mount but his England colleague Gomez who was about joining the fray.

Gomez had a fracas with Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling in last weekend’s Premier League clash between Liverpool and City, and the duo’s scuffle lingered even while on international duty with the Three Lions, with Sterling made to sit out Montenegro game for allegedly grabbing the throat of Gomez.

Obviously, Manchester City fans turned on Gomez as he was about to enter the pitch, and Mount thought the boos were targeted at him as he was heading off.

“I thought they were booing me when I came off,” Mount said. “It has gone now, everything has been worked out in the camp and now I think the focus goes on to the next game.

“We are a strong side together, we get together and stay together. So we will just focus on the next game.”
