Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount scored the winner as England beat Belgium 2-1 at Wembley this afternoon.

Gareth Southgate lined up his England team in a 3-4-3 formation with Mount, earning his ninth cap, most often found on the right side of the front three. He regularly switched flanks with Marcus Rashford.

Former Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku put Belgium ahead from the spot with a quarter-of-an-hour played but Rashford ensured England went in level at the break after scoring from the spot.

Mount scored England’s winner in the 64th minute after switching to the left flank. Collecting a Kieran Tripper nod-down just inside the box, he cut inside and curled goalwards. The shot took a deflection off Toby Alderweireld, and looped over Simon Mignolet and into the top right-hand corner.

The goal against Belgium is Mount’s second goal for England.
