Chelsea youngster Mason Mount, who has been impressive in his international duties, has sparked an interest in Jamie Redknapp after his performance against Belgium.
Having been impressed with the 21-year-old midfielder performance, the former England midfielder asked the youngster to put more action in the final third of the pitch.
The 47-year-old midfielder, who was played for Liverpool for 11 campaigns, heaped praises on Mount and further claimed that he has the potential to become the Three Lions’ Kevin De Bruyne as he found some similarities between the two players after their clash against each other in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday, with several odds provided by best online blackjack real money for the match.
The Gareth Southgate’s team were able to make a comeback of 2-1 victory against the Belgians from their one-goal deficit earlier in the match.
The Red Devils took the first lead of the match in the 16th minute as their striker Romelu Lukaku fined the back of the net from the penalty spot. Eric Dier was unable to keep up with Belgian striker Lukaku, who ran past him, and made a clumsy challenge leaving the referee no choice but to award the penalty. The Inter Milan forward made no mistake as he found the back of the net, denying English goalkeeper Jordan Pickford a chance from saving it.
Following their lead, the Roberto Martinez’s team went on to dominate the first half until the second penalty was given to the Southgate team after right-back Thomas Meunier was spotted to have held back Jordan Henderson in the box.
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford stepped in for the Three Lions to take the penalty. And just like Lukaku had done, Rashford also found the goal with six minutes left before the break. The first half ended with the Gareth Southgate’s team finding their momentum before the break.
19 minutes into the second half, the Three Lions were able to take the final lead of the match as Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier found Mason Mount with a back nod, and Mount, who was at the edge of the box, found the right corner of the post in a shot that bounced off Toby Alderweireld.
Mount’s goal in the match was not his only contribution; as he was pivotal for the English team and went on to win the Man of the Match award. Kevin De Bruyne was one of the most dangerous players in the Belgian team and he was responsible for most of their close call attacks.
According to Redknapp, Mount abilities on the pitch can be comparable to the Belgian attacker and he also wants the Chelsea youngster to play like the Manchester City star in every game, and odds will be provided by cinemacasino casino every single time.
Speaking about the 21-year-old Blues youngster, Redknapp said: “They’ve (Belgium) got such an incredible player. We were purring watching some of Kevin De Bruyne’s passes. He was picking up pockets.
“When we talk about Mason Mount, I want him to do that more. Kevin De Bruyne is playing in a position in a three, but he was still getting a license to go and get the ball.
“Wherever the ball is, he’ll find it. Mason is that player who can do it for us, you don’t have to just stay on the right side, come inside.
“For the goal, that’s where he gets that fortune, which he deserved because he came inside and scored the goal.”
Masin Mount will be returning to the Premier League for a clash against Southampton on Saturday in Gameweek 5.
