Mason Mount has made huge career leaps in his football career so far. The 20-year-old joined Chelsea as an under-9, and has now found his way into the Chelsea first team.
Mount excelled in loan spells at Vitesse Arnhem and did well at Derby County last season under Frank Lampard’s tutelage. He has now worked his way into Chelsea’s starting eleven under Lampard, and has been a key part of the team so far.
Mount’s performances have seen him earn a call-up to the England national team, and the youngster is still in awe of how far he has come. Mount has admitted that his family members could shed tears if he makes his national team bow, having made the Three Lions squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers at home to Bulgaria on Saturday and Kosovo on Tuesday.
“You can’t really put into words how it will feel stepping out onto the pitch at Wembley and representing your country,” Mount said.
“It is such a massive feeling and hopefully, I will be able to experience that.
“It’s not only a massive moment for me, but also for my family and all the coaches that I’ve worked with to help get me to this point.
“My family, in particular, have been a massive part of my career. They come to every one of my games and I’m sure there will be a few proud tears from them if I get to make my debut.”
