Greenwood reacts to England debut
Mason Greenwood says it was a
“massive achievement for me and my family” after Manchester United's 18-year-old striker proudly made his senior England debut on Saturday evening.
The score was still 0-0 when Greenwood replaced Harry Kane in Reykjavik and his entrance seemed to improve England's attack, with his direct, proactive style yielding a corner for his side a few moments later.
Almost immediately, Greenwood's hopes of making a winning debut were nearly dashed; Iceland were awarded a spot-kick at the other end for a foul by Liverpool centre-back Joe Gomez but Birkir Bjarnason, a former Aston Villa midfielder, spurned the chance to equalise.
Reds keeper Dean Henderson was an unused substitute, with Everton's Jordan Pickford playing the full 90 minutes in goal. But while our young stopper waits for his England debut, we're congratulating Mason on his - as well as all the United staff who have helped him to get there.
