Mount helps England to winning start to Euro 2020

England started the game brightly, with Phil Foden striking the inside of the post within the first six minutes, before Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips saw an effort kept out by the goalkeeper moments later.

Mount impressed every time he got on the ball with his driving runs from midfield, although it was Zlatko Dedic’s side who ended the half the stronger with a sustained period of pressure.

However it was Gareth Southgate’s England charges, backed by around 22,000 fans inside Wembley, who pushed on and grabbed the all-important goal, as Sterling justified his starting spot by firing home the winner just before the hour mark.
