Video: Gareth Southgate sets Mason Greenwood challenge after first England call-up

Mason Greenwood has received his first senior international call-up after an incredible breakthrough season with Manchester United.

The 18-year-old hit the net 17 times in all competitions and he will be aiming to better that next term — along with opening his account in an England shirt.

Four United players have made Gareth Southgate’s squad, including Greenwood. They include Dean Henderson, Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire.

England face Iceland in Reykjavik on Saturday 5 September before taking on Denmark in Copenhagen three days later.

In the video below, Southgate explains the call-ups for Greenwood and Man City’s Phil Foden.

He makes it very clear that they will be in contention for Euro 2021 so long as they take their opportunities.
