Chelsea midfielder, Mason Mason says beating Belgium in the Nations League at Wembley is special.
The youngster scored the winner after Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford canceled out Romelu Lukaku’s opener.
“It’s a special achievement to score my first goal at Wembley. I found myself in a bit of space and had only one thing on my mind. It took a really big deflection but it doesn’t matter how they go in. I’ll take it,” Mount said after the encounter which ended Belgium’s two-year unbeaten run.

England manager Gareth Southgate added: “It was a top-level game. We had a lot of young players there for whom that was a really great experience. You have to suffer to win these big games and the players did that.”
While Captain Jordan Henderson said: “We want to compete with the very best teams, and Belgium are certainly that. We competed very well and that’s what we want to do, keep competing and growing and you never know where that may take us.”
England have won 20 of their past 21 competitive home games (L1), scoring 67 goals while conceding only 10 while Belgium have lost for only the fourth time in 47 games under Martinez (P47 W36 D7), and for the first time since November 2018 versus Switzerland.
