England’s Mason Mount took a look back at his life through Instagram in the latest of our new video series.

The Chelsea midfielder has been a regular for England over the years after first breaking into the international set up with our MU16s and working his way through the ranks ever since.

It was also the same at Stamford Bridge, with the Portsmouth-born playmaker having been on Chelsea’s academy books since he was eight.

And there’s a few moments from those days which made Mason’s Insta Story even more special, as he looks back at them from his current position as a first-team regular for both club and country.

One moment which springs out is a stunning goal he scored for the Young Lions in a 2-1 win over Germany with the MU17s back in 2015.

Aside from the sublime finish, Mount also revealed his current Chelsea teammate Kai Havertz was in close opposition on that night in Rotherham.

“It was my first game on TV, playing against Germany, so it was a massive game for us at Rotherham's stadium,” he recalled.

“I can't remember the final score, but I did score a goal in the game and that's what I remember - it wasn't too bad a goal.

“Kai Havertz, my teammate at the moment, is actually in the video.

“Not many people know this, but he is the one that grabs my face. I've spoken to him about it at training and we had a good laugh about it.

“He actually remembered it as well. It was funny. Now he's going to get exposed now, so everyone is going to know. But great memories to score for your country.”

Another memorable moment from the past came up from a squad shot of the MU19s squad together in Georgia, following their success at the UEFA U19 EURO Finals back in 2017.

“Euros champs, that's all I can say,” added Mount.

“Unbelievable memories, to win something for your country and be involved in a team like that, with the staff and loads of familiar faces in that group.

“We were there in Georgia probably a good couple of weeks, so you have to be strong together.

“We were like a family out there, so unbelievable memories to kind of go through and end up winning it.

“We played some very good teams, we beat Germany in the group and then Portugal in the final, so some big teams. Euros champs.”
