Chelsea FC youngster Mason Mount makes England vow
Chelsea FC starlet Mason Mount reflects on having made his senior England debut at the weekend
Mason Mount is already targeting more opportunities with England after having made his senior debut for the Three Lions over the weekend.
The Chelsea FC starlet came on to play the final 23 minutes of England’s 4-0 win over Bulgaria in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Saturday as he capped a fine start to the new season.
Mount has been a regular fixture in the Chelsea FC team under Frank Lampard this term, starting all four of the Blues’ games and scoring two goals.
The 20-year-old is now focused on building on his impressive start as he bids to try and force his way into contention for a regular spot in the team for both England and Chelsea FC.
Speaking in an interview quoted by the Daily Mail, Mount said: “It has been a crazy 12 months. It was unbelievable, something you dream about as a kid.
“There were not many people there for that Under-21 game and it was like playing on a school pitch. But it went well and everything has gone so quickly. I have just tried to learn everything I can.
“You get a little bit nervous every time you get asked to step up. But when I am on the pitch, the nerves go away and you focus on the game, trying to have an impact.
“Every time there is a target and a goal, I try to push and reach that goal.”
He continued: “It’s gone so well so far. If you look at our squad it’s young – one that wants to learn and wants to win.
“If you are playing well, you are going to get a chance. When you do, you have to take it. But you have to earn it. This was a massive moment for me. I want more opportunities.”
Mount will be expecting to start for Chelsea FC when the Blues return to Premier League action after the international break with a trip to Wolves on Saturday.
The west London side have only won one of their opening four top-flight games so far this season to leave them with just five points from a possible 12.
The Blues were pegged back and held to a 2-2 draw by Sheffield United last time out.
