Mason Mount was used off the bench by England in their win over Wales on Thursday night – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter praised their player for his impact.
Gareth Southgate’s England recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory at Wembley in the friendly match against Wales, as they prepare for Nations League fixtures in the next few days against Belgium and Denmark.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Conor Coady and Danny Ings were on the scoresheet for the Three Lions, as the manager took a good look at some players in his squad.
Despite having no representatives in the starting XI, Chelsea duo Mount and Reece James were both introduced as substitutes during the second-half, with the latter making his senior debut for his country.
Mount showcased the kind of work-rate and endeavour for England that he regularly has at Stamford Bridge, adding an extra bit of intent going forward and linking up intelligently with teammates around.
The 21-year-old is already popular with Blues manager Frank Lampard at club level and he continues to get minutes under Southgate.
He is an attacking midfielder that is a real creative threat in the final third and would have had picked up an assist if Bukayo Saka had finished better in front of goal .
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media liked what they saw from Mount in his international performance and feel he made a serious impact.
Here are some Chelsea fans discussing Mount:
Mount and James very impressive for England when they came on today. Very very sharp.
