Mason Greenwood: Obviously any young football player would want to break records

Mason Greenwood talks on his maiden call-up to the three Lion senior team for the Nation League matches against Iceland and Denmark.

The 18 year will be hoping to make his bow for his nation in the forthcoming matches after a wonderful and successful season with Manchester United.

The youngstar's 17 goals across all competitions for United in 2019-20 prompted his maiden call up by Gareth Southgate.

"Obviously any young football player would want to break records," Greenwood said. "And if you didn't, there's something wrong.

"It's always nice to have visions and goals you set in your football career and that goes for virtually any England forward.

"Just go out there and do your best and break records and just be remembered forever, really."

"The games have come so quick and you have to be focused 100 per cent at all times," he said. "My whole family was excited for me and it's a dream come true.

"It's happened quick. You can be called on at any time and I got called in for some Europa League games early in the season and took my chances and took every game as it came and just played my football."

The youngstar also thanked his manager at Manchester United for believing and giving him the opportunities to shine.

"I took a lot of belief from that, a lot of confidence to say that the manager has got the confidence in me to put me on in that state of the game," Greenwood added.

"I'm just glad he did because it's helped my career and things are more calm now. I am used to it now because the pressure was high in that game. Not many people can say they made their debut in such a special game.

"Ole says to all the young players coming up: 'Go out there with a smile on your face. You're playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, just take it on the chin, go out there and express yourself. Think about it as a normal game because you've been waiting for that moment all your life so just go out and enjoy it'."
