England are away to Czech Republic for this Euro 2020 qualifier, and Mount will no doubt hope to make a positive impact.
Other Chelsea youngsters such as Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori also made it into Southgate’s squad this time, showing just how well the Blues have done in promoting and developing their academy talent this season.
It looked like their transfer ban could really hurt them this season, but new manager Frank Lampard has got the best out of Chelsea’s youth and England are now feeling the benefits too.
