Bilingual is Better

Mason Mount says he’s excited about the possibility of creating his England bow.
The pair have been included in Gareth Southgate’s squad to the Qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo where Mount, that joined up with the England squad at October last season will win his first senior global cap.
Rice and mount played in the Chelsea youth positions prior to the Blues released the latter if he was just 14. However, he has gone on to be a regular for club and country and joined West Ham.
To the national side at which he expects to get the chance to once again play alongside his buddy, Mount has earned another call-up Observing an impressive start to his Premier League career under Frank Lampard at Chelsea.
“That’s something we’ve spoken about for a long, long time,” Mount said. “Becoming really, very close buddies with him that is something we’ve always looked forward to maybe happening in the future. Speaking together with him, that is really exciting.
“We are very, very close and’ve known each other for a long time. We’ve always spoken of playing each other 14, about that chance.
“Playing with one another at Chelsea at the youthful age, it was something special between us we’ve always kept that hope of it possibly happening again.”
Mount admits he was disappointed to watch Rice depart Chelsea because they came through the ranks but has not yet been amazed at his rise in the Premier League and also on the international stage, which watched him make his England debut in March this year.
“Yeah of course [I was sad to see go]. He was one of my friends. But as I said before – that’s football and it happens,” he explained.
“He is bounced right back and look what he’s doing now. It is a credit to him and his mindset that’s what he is like as a boyhe doesn’t let anything get him downhe always focused on achieving big things”
Mount said being engaged in Southgate’s squad because of their Nations League matches from Croatia and Spain last October gave him the”hunger” to earn another call-up to the senior side and disclosed it will be an emotional occasion for his loved ones if chosen.
“You always dream about that call-up – which beginning for England as a kid, so I’ve always dreamed of that,” he explained. “I am excited about those two matches, so working hard in practice to finally make that occur.
“Being in the group last year, having a flavor of being round the area and being with the first team gave me that extra desire to go and wish to participate with the squad , therefore it is a enormous moment for me and I’m looking forward to these next two matches.
“I believe being at Chelsea, it’s that different degree. But arriving last season, being involved with the squad, learning how they work, I’ve been throughout the ages in England but when you get called up to the seniors it’s a different level. So being here last year, working with them, realizing how they want to work and play has obviously helped me coming back last season.”
He added:”It is such a joyful moment, it’s what you dream about for a very, very long time. You can’t actually have the words to describe that sense of stepping out creating your debut.
“It’s such a large moment for your family, for most of the coaches that have worked together previously. So it is not merely a moment for me but a large moment for those people around me and people I have worked with before.
“It is going to be a very proud time for me and there’ll likely be a couple of tears when I really do get to make my debut. [My family] are a enormous part of my livelihood so I can create my debut and they will be very, very proud.”
