Chelsea loanee Mason Mount has admitted he was surprised to make the senior England squad because he is playing in the Championship.
The 19-year-old has impressed for the Rams this season but he says winning first call-up to the England squad was not expected.
He said: "It is a very surreal feeling coming into the senior squad.
"Training for four days before the World Cup made me hungrier to get into the squad. Maybe the opportunity at Chelsea wasn't there so I had to get out on loan and obviously with the gaffer and Jody [Morris] there, there was an opportunity for me to play quite a few games.
"That was the decision I made at that time but obviously me being chosen for the England senior team was a surprise for me as I'm playing in the Championship."
