Long-Time Best Mates Declan Rice And Mason Mount Realise Every Child's Dream In Scoring For England

Long-Time Best Mates Declan Rice And Mason Mount Realise Every Child's Dream In Scoring For England

Seeing Declan Rice and Mason Mount live out every child's dream last night was incredibly wholesome.

The two have been best mates since the age of eight and played in the Chelsea academy together as youngsters before Rice was released and left Mount's mum Debbie in tears.

But fast forward to November 2020 and the two ran the midfield in England's 4-0 win over Iceland at Wembley Stadium.

Their partnership, which dates back many years, worked brilliantly and helped Gareth Southgate's side completely dominate the ball.

Of course they both went one better though. West Ham midfielder Rice scored his first goal for his country by opening the scoring from a pinpoint Phil Foden delivery and the two best pals were embracing four minutes later when Mount nipped in to extend England's lead.

"When we knew we were playing in midfield together that in itself was a special moment and to score in the same game as well was incredible," Rice told Sky Sports, as per The Independent.

Mount said on a normal night both of their families would have been sat together witnessing the lovely moment but the Chelsea man was still bursting with pride.

"They would have been here together if fans were allowed, they were here when I made my debut and Dec was already playing," he added.

"[They're] special memories that we're making together and we've been best mates together from a very young age - now we're making more memories so it's great."

The life-long friends, who are responsible for one of the greatest videos ever when Mount scared Rice on holiday, will be lining up and "kicking one another" next month as they go at it in West Ham's visit of Chelsea on 19 December.
