Mason Mount was one of the very standout performers in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. The result has seen the Blues progress to the Champions League finals for the first time since 2012, and they are bound to face off Manchester City for the grand finale.
The young Englishman got a well-deserved goal against the Spanish giants in the encounter with a cool finish from Christian Pulisic’s inch-perfect cross.
With the goal, Mason Mount becomes the second-youngest English player to ever score in a UEFA Champions League semi-final, after Wayne Rooney in 2007.
Mount achieved this feat aged 22 years and 115 days, whereas, Wayne Rooney achieved the feat aged 21 years and 182 days after the Manchester United legend scored twice, including a stoppage-time winner in Manchester United thrilling 3-2 victory over AC Milan in their Champions League semi-final first leg on Tuesday 24 April 2007.
Congratulations Mason Mount on your newest achievement!
