Rob Green says it was ‘baffling’ that midfielder was not subbed off during England’s draw with USA.

‘When England were making the first substitutions I had Mason Mount down to come off. It just didn’t come off for him,’ former England goalkeeper Green told BBC Radio 5 Live.

‘That doesn’t make him a bad player, it happens. It was baffling that he stayed on for the 90 minutes. It was strange.’

On England’s performance as a whole, Green added: ‘There wasn’t enough good individual performances from England tonight.

‘They also didn’t have any composure on the ball. It looked like they had plans on the ball in the first five or 10 minutes, but they went away from that.

‘USA adjusted and credit to them for that, but realistically it wasn’t good enough individually from England.

‘You are standing there and asking “which of you had a good performance? Which one of you credited?”. It didn’t really happen for any of them.

‘It was a really underwhelming performance. They were underwhelming on the ball and didn’t quite it right off the ball.

‘They stayed in the game and kept a clean sheet. That is the one positive.

‘Harry Maguire was the standout player for England for his defensive interceptions. That sums it up. It wasn’t great.’
