Mason Mount has reflected on his journey that has seen him been called up to England’s 2022 World Cup squad.

The Chelsea midfielder was included in the 26-man squad, which was widely expected given how important he has become for Gareth Southgate’s team.

Mount posted a picture of himself when he was seven years old wearing an England kit and watching the 2006 World Cup, when he dreamed of playing at the biggest tournament in the world. 

Mason Mount has reflected on his journey to being named in England’s World Cup squad

Mount wrote on Twitter: ‘Looking back at 7 year old me, sat on the stairs on holiday with my oversized England kit and St George’s face paint… Watching the 2006 World Cup, I could only ever dream of one day having the honour to play even a small part in one.

‘Now that day has come and what an incredible feeling this is… I think back to the hours of sacrifice my family, friends and coaches all put in for me, and how I wouldn’t be here without them. We want to make our country proud and bring it home. Come on England’.

Captain Harry Kane vowed that England will give everything to be a success at the tournament

England captain Harry Kane was present at the previous tournament in Russia and is relishing taking part in another tournament.

He wrote: ‘So proud to be captaining my country at a World Cup for the second time. I know this group of lads will give absolutely everything to go all the way. Let’s go!’.

Arsenal star Bukayo Saka is relishing the opportunity of taking part in his first World Cup

Bukayo Saka will be involved at his first World Cup and the Arsenal winger is looking forward to the opportunity.

Saka wrote: ‘My childhood dream to play in a World Cup has come true! Qatar 2022. Let’s go @England #GodsPlan’.

Phil Foden described being called up as ‘an honour’.

He wrote: ‘It’s always an honour to be called up to the England squad but this is something else, my first World Cup, wow! Buzzin’! Can’t wait’.

Declan Rice says being named in the squad will live with him forever. He told West Ham’s official website: ‘It’s crazy! It’s not really hit me yet, to be honest.

‘I think I might be one of less than 500 Englishmen who have gone to a World Cup, and there’s so many people in this country want to be a footballer and I’m one of 26 players who has been selected to go, so it’s an honour and one that will now live with me forever.

‘I’m looking forward to it. I’m obviously wishing all my teammates the best as well, but obviously want us to win it.’
