There were fears about the fitness of Chelsea star Mason Mount, as the 22-year-old midfielder was absent from the rest of the group for England’s initial warm-up at Pennyhill Park on Tuesday and did gym work instead with the medical and performance team.

Speaking to the press on Tuesday, England boss Gareth Southgate calmed down fears of injury as he revealed that Mount took part in the latter part of England’s training session and could be in line to feature against Poland on Wednesday.

Mount has featured in seven straight games for England and will mark his eighth straight start for the Three Lions if he’s included in today’s starting lineup.

Meanwhile, Mount has revealed that he’s raring to go and is also looking forward to facing a difficult Polish side.

The Chelsea midfielder said: “I’m still young so I want to play every game I can and as many games as I can.

“My mentality is always that I just keep working hard to get into the team, to stay in the team and try to get as many games as I can. That is always my focus.”

He also said: “Obviously I feel very fortunate to have started the last seven games for England.

“I’m in a good place at the moment and I’m confident.

“I’ve just got to keep that going. Now the focus is on the next game and it’s a massive game against Poland. Their team is very strong but as a team we go into it with the mentality of wanting to win.”
