Mount delighted to play his part in opening England victory

‘Then the sun kicks in and of course you expect to get a little tired, but we continue to push Croatia and that was pleasing because our counter press is something we’ve really tried to work on this week.

‘I thought the way we managed the game was very good and the most important thing is to be stood here knowing we’ve got three points from our first group game, which it really pleasing.

‘It was brilliant to have the fans in the stadium and they really made a difference. Before the game, I was really looking forward to lining up and singing the national anthem in front of them and it was a really special moment.
