The 22-year-old English forward picked out excellent balls to find his teammates and was unlucky not to grab an assist or two in Sunday’s victory with Manchester city’s Raheem sterling on target for the Three lions.

Frank Lampard, his former boss who gave him the chance at both Derby County and Chelsea, was on hand to lavish praise on the 22-year-old.

“Mason’s performance all round was class, he for me is the best attacking midfielder in terms of pressing and jumping back in midfield to win the ball back,”Lampard told the BBC.

He added: “Every manager that works with Mason will say the same. Incredible talented boy, incredible work ethic. There’s something about him that’s so complete to manage.”

What Mason Mount said on the Croatia win;
“We (England) was brilliant for the first 20 minutes, but the sun kicked in and we got a bit tired and they have a bit of a ball.

“But thats natural because the players they have they are going to dominate some of the ball, and we had to allow that and just shuffle and block.

“The most important thing is we got the three points.”

Mount is next in action on Friday when England face Scotland at Wembley.
