Saturday's game was Bent's third start in the last four internationals.
He said: "It's gone really well.
"Fabio's shown real faith in me this season - I thank him for that.
"And he's played me again for another 90, which hasn't happened before in the past, and I'm over the moon about it.
"All I can keep doing is doing well for my club side, which I've done this season, and get a good rest under my belt. It's been a long old season."
