Thomas Meunier mocked Jordan Henderson at the full-time whistle as he accused the Liverpool midfielder of going down too easily in England’s win over Belgium.
A deflected strike sailed over former Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet as England recorded a win over the world’s highest-ranked team.
The award of Rashford’s penalty – which was won by Henderson – was a talking point following the contest.
Meunier put his hand on Henderson’s shoulder and slightly tugged the midfielder, who fell to the floor.
At full-time cameras caught Henderson talking to Meunier – in what was, in fairness, a seemingly good natured discussion – and the Belgium right-back mocked Henderson going down easily by imitating his fall.
Henderson cheekily grinned in an interview with Sky Sports after the match: ‘I got in front of my man and I felt him pull me back on my shoulder. I felt it was a penalty!’
He added in an interview with Radio Five Live: ‘It was very nice to get back out there, playing for England. It was nice to play again after a while. It was a good game to come into, Belgium are a very good side. We’ve got to be delighted with the performance level and getting the three points.
‘We managed the game very well, particularly second half. I thought we were a lot stronger and created one or two chances which I think we could have scored from and defended well overall.
‘He wasn’t sure it was a penalty, but I was pretty sure it was. I was in front of him and he pulled back on my shoulder. After that we grew in confidence in the game, after speaking about a couple of things tactically at half-time.
‘We want to compete with the very best teams, and Belgium are certainly that. We competed very well and that’s what we want to do, keep competing and growing and you never know where that may take us.’
England moved to the top of their Nations League group and Chelsea’s Mount was delighted to get on the scoresheet.
‘It’s a special achievement to score my first goal at Wembley, I found myself in a bit of space and had only one thing on my mind,’ said Mount. ‘It took a really big deflection but it doesn’t matter how they go in. I’ll take it.
‘We were hanging in there at half time, at 1-1. But we knew we could regroup and fix the problems we were having.
‘We tried to stay higher and win the ball back as quickly as we could. We didn’t want them having a lot of the ball in our half.
‘So we tried to keep the ball better and create chances. We had a couple of chances and it worked.’
