Chelsea’s Mason Mount on making his debut for England

England 4-Bulgaria 0

England faced Bulgaria on Saturday the 7th of September, in their first Euro 2020 qualifying match of the new season.

The first-half was rather lackluster from an England perspective, but Gareth Southgate’s side still went in at half-time with a 1-0 lead thanks to Harry Kane.

The second-half was much better from England, with Kane scoring twice from the spot, and Raheem Sterling getting on the scoresheet.

England’s next game is against Kosovo on Tuesday the 10th of September.

Mount makes his debut

Chelsea’s Mason Mount would also be handed his debut for England’s senior side on Saturday.

The young midfielder has been very impressive for Chelsea in the league so far this campaign, scoring two in four appearances.

Mount would replace Jordan Henderson vs Bulgaria in the 67th minute.

The youngster had a decent showing vs Bulgaria, and has since opened up on making his debut for England:

“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 percentages of people that do it are very slim, so it’s been a long, long career that I’ve had so far. But I’ve been working hard and obviously it’s a massively proud moment for me and my family.

“I wasn’t really too nervous. 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 been a crazy last couple of months. Making my debut for Chelsea, and now being called up to the England squad and making my debut today. It has been a blur.” As quoted by the Independent.
