Chelsea fans have taken to Twitter to react after Mason Mount scored his first goal for England in the 4-0 win over Kosovo.
The 20-year-old has scored four goals in 12 Premier League appearances for the Blues this season as Frank Lampard has handed him regular first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge, and Mount has now made his campaign even better on a personal level with a first Three Lions goal.
Mount received a pass from Harry Kane in the 91st minute, before opening his body up and curling the ball into the bottom left corner on his weaker foot – the strike didn’t have a huge impact on the result, although it will surely be a moment that the Chelsea academy graduate never forgets.
Additionally, Mount became the youngest Chelsea player to score for England since Jimmy Greaves netted against Wales in November 1960 – a huge achievement for the former Derby loanee.
