It was a fruitful weekend for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount as he scored his first ever goal for the England senior team in the Three Lions 4-0 thumping of Kosovo.
Mount scored the fourth goal of the game – a stoppage time goal having entered the game as a substitute in the 73rd minute, and his first for England at senior level – and the 37th goal for the Three Lions in the group stage, as England won for a seventh time in eight games.
Mount was very excited to score his first international goal in what is a breakthrough season for the 20-year-old.
“It was quite a surreal moment,” the 20-year midfielder said afterwards.
“It happened so quickly for me and I ended up scoring and Harry [Kane] got an assist for me. It was a brilliant moment and I am obviously very pleased with it and proud, and I think my family watching will be very happy with it.
“You have a kind of feeling that you can score,” he explained, “and Harry flicked it to me and there was a bit of time when I did not know whether to go with my left foot or right foot, but I put it on my left foot and that side of the goal was open so I just tried to get it on target.”
Mount had a goal disallowed in the game against Montenegro, and he was looking forward to making it right against Kosovo.
He added: “The other night I had one disallowed for offside and I probably should have scored the own-goal one, but against Kosovo I was focused on coming on and making an impact.”
