Photo: Mason Greenwood’s journey continues with senior debut for England

Mason Greenwood says it was a massive achievement to male his England debut on Saturday evening.

The teenage forward made the comment in a post-match tweet, after coming on as a 78th-minute substitute for the Three Lions in their 1-0 away win over Iceland in the UEFA Nations League.

Greenwood replaced Harry Kane and the scoreline was still 0-0 at the time. His direct style suited England going forward so it was a good switch by Gareth Southgate, although we are sure Greenwood would have enjoyed more minutes on the pitch.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring late on in the 89th-minute with a penalty.

What a story it would have been had Sterling given Greenwood the penalty. He’d have scored too!

Anyhow, Greenwood took to Twitter after the match to say: “Senior debut, a massive achievement for me and my family the journey continues ❤️ @England”

Greenwood only had a short debut but I would be very surprised if he didn’t make Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2021.
