REVEALED: Why Chelsea ace Mason Mount proud wearing England's No19 shirt

Chelsea ace Mason Mount is proud to be wearing the No19 shirt for England at the World Cup.

Indeed, the No19 that Mount wears for Chelsea and England sums up his career to date.

In reality, he would prefer the more prestigious No8 or No10, but he does not kick up a fuss. And wearing the shirt worn by Paul Gascoigne at Italia 90 is not lost on him.

“I wouldn't say it is actually my preferred number," Mount said after Prince William presented him with his England shirt before the tournament.

“It is my second time in an amazing tournament and I don't mind wearing No19. We opened up our shirts and it said who wore it in the past.

"Mine had Gazza, it was just unbelievable to see."
