And the Portsmouth-born talent revealed how not getting on the scoresheet against Montenegro last week in his side's 7-0 win was his motivation against Kosovo.The midfielder had a goal disallowed on Thursday, but didn't have to wait too long to be celebrating a strike.That came as the former Pubrook Park School pupil rounded off the Three Lions’ 4-0 in stoppage time.Speaking to football.london, Mount said: ‘To be fair I can't really remember much!‘I remember we won the ball back on the edge of the box and it was close to the goal.‘I just tried to get as close as I can and H put me in. Then it was just trying to finish it and get in on target.‘The last game I had a couple of chances which I didn't score, so coming on to the pitch and knowing I can make and impact and getting on to the scoresheet was on my mind.‘Obviously I'm very, very happy with that opportunity and very proud to score my first goal.’
