Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has hailed the influence of Manchester United's Ashley Young in England's draw against Montenegro.

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has hailed the influence of Manchester United's Ashley Young in England's draw against Montenegro.

Bent’s goal was a tap-in from close range after unselfish work from Young, scorer of England’s first goal, and he was quick to give credit to his former Villa team-mate.

“It’s got a lot to do with him,” said Bent.

“Every time I make a run or get into the box, he seems to find me. Part of him probably wanted to shoot, but to be fair to him he made the pass. Luckily enough I stuck it away and was happy to get a tap-in and even happier to be on the way to the Euros.”
