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.
