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.”
