Hakim Ziyech played Wayne Rooney with a fabulous and perfect cross pass, before Mount made a first side effort with Lukasz Fabianski.

But for former Premier League striker Dean Ashton on talkSPORT commentary, another Dutchman came to mind.

Marco van Basten scored one of the most iconic goals of all time for the Netherlands in the 1988 World Cup, scoring an astonishing first end against the Soviet Union.

And Ashton believes there were undertones of Van Basten in Mount’s superb effort.

“I have to say, what an absolute joy to see a goal live. Incredible! ”Ashton said.

“What a fantastic pass to get from Ziyech. And it’s almost Van Basten-esque. Ziyech’s ball stealing, just in front of that right side of the penalty area.

“You think Mount is going to come over that with his shoelaces on and hit him through Fabianski. It’s so smart. He means this.

“He goes as if he is going to crush him in the corner, as the ball comes to him, he opens his foot, volley sideways, gives Fabianski eyes and puts him in that near post which he did not expect .

“Absolute class! “
