Manchester United starlet Kobbie Mainoo was awarded Man of Match against Belgium after an outstanding performance in his first-ever start for England on Tuesday night in a 2-2 draw against Belgium.

Mainoo played a key role in the build-up play for England’s penalty as Ivan Toney made it 1- in the first-half.

Mainoo might have earned himself a place in England team ahead of Euro 2024 after showcasing two strong performances for the Three Lions in March.

The 18-year-old could not ask for a better start to life as an England player in terms of his performance and impact, but injuries have left Gareth Southgate’s side looking shaky at the back.

The Three Lions performance need to surge up ahead of the European Championship because they have managed no wins from their two March friendlies.

Last night it was a matter of Mainoo and Real Madrid star Jude Bellingham getting Jordan Pickford and Lewis Dunk out of jail, as their errors led to Youri Tielemans scoring a brace for the visitors.
