Former England midfielder, Frank Lampard, has commented on Mason Mount’s performance following the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 1-0 victory against Croatia on Sunday.
Lampard, who managed Mount during his time at Derby County and Chelsea respectively, said the midfielder’s performance for England against Croatia was classic.

“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.
Meanwhile, reacting after the game, Mount said at his post-match press conference, “We were 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 that is 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.”
England will now face Scotland in their next Euro 2020 fixture on Friday.
