You only have to be a talented youngster to make your England senior team debut in a Euro qualifying game at just the age of 20 – and that’s the story of Chelsea youngster Mason Mount who’s so far having an incredible season with the Blues.

Mount made his England debut as he appeared off the bench in the Three Lions’ comfortable 4-0 victory over Bulgaria.

With the scores at 3-0, Mount replaced Jordan Henderson midway through the second half, and played in the No.10 role, after coming on in the 67th minute of the game.

Mount always seems confident on the pitch, and it’s no wonder why he’s an important player for Frank Lampard. The young midfielder has admitted that he didn’t feel nervous in the game against Bulgaria.

“I wasn’t really too nervous,” told Chelsea’s official website. “It’s a game of football so it’s something that I’ve done all my life.

“When you come on, you just want to get on the ball, have your first touch, get that out the way and then try to influence the game.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling to make your debut for your country. It’s something that you dream of as a little kid.”

“I think the percentage of people that do it are very slim but I’ve been working hard for a long time and obviously it’s a proud moment for me and my family.

“It’s been a crazy last couple of months. Making my debut for Chelsea, then being called up to the England squad and making my debut today. It has been a blur.”
