Just like at Chelsea, Mason Mount has become one of the most reliable performers for England. In one episode from England’s win over Croatia, the midfielder showed what he can give the team on the ball.
Mount received the ball on the left wing;
But unfortunately, the 22-year-old was in a static position when he received a pass, thus, the only option to move the ball forward was to pass it;
He then saw Raheem Sterling making a run behind a Croatian midfielder and brilliantly made a pass to the point where he thought the Manchester City winger would be;
And of course, Sterling was in a great position to directly shout the ball on the goal (if only he wasn’t moving away from it).
However, the City man ended us squandering the chance and the episode was not left unnoticed by some Chelsea fans;
Glorfindel42 (Reddit): “His passing just keeps improving.”
commonsenseguy2014 (Reddit): “So bothersome that Sterling’s first instinct is to turn away from goal.”
Hajir (Twitter): “Mason Mount getting robbed of assists in Chelsea and in England.”
ilaughallthetime (Reddit): “I have to remind my friends why he starts. The dude is Mr. Consistently and always gives it his all.”
