Following England’s goalless draw with the USA, Brad Friedel has supported Mason Mount of Chelsea amid “unfair” criticism of the midfielder.
Although Mount played the entire match against the USA, many England supporters believed the Manchester City star Phil Foden should have replaced the Chelsea midfielder.
The decision to play Mount for the whole 90 minutes has drawn criticism from certain analysts, including Gary Neville and Paul Parker, who have advised Gareth Southgate to ignore Mount in the future.

“Mount faced players that are incredibly physically demanding.”
