Mount and Foden starred for Chelsea and Manchester City in their respective Champions League semi-final triumphs and will now come up against one another in the all-English final in Istanbul, Turkey on May 29.
Foden supplied the assist for Riyad Mahrez's second in the 2-0 second leg win at the Etihad Stadium, while Mount notched the goal that all but secured Chelsea's passage to the final last night.
Both academy products have made huge strides this season, with a combined total of 13 goals and 11 assists in the Premier League.
They've also stepped up to the mark on the biggest stage, the Champions League, and are expected to be key players for Gareth Southgate's England side in the upcoming European Championships.
Most of us grew up in the Lampard, Gerrard, Scholes era of British football and now it looks like we're entering the Mason Mount and Phil Foden era.- EiF (@EiFSoccer) May 5, 2021
Two gems. The technique, the personality, the work-rate, the versatility - they're brilliant.

And Owen, the last Englishman to win the Ballon d'Or back in 2001, reckons the duo can go right to the top.

"So exciting for the summer with England of course. I think Mason Mount, and Phil Foden for that matter, could be two of the best players in the world in the future," Owen told BT Sport.
"I think they are that good. It's so exciting to watch their progress. I think, honestly, they are going to get there.
"Certainly Foden. In fact, seeing Mount live here, he's a phenomenal player. But Foden could develop into one of the best players England has ever seen."
In 2017, Foden and Mount lined up against one another in the FA Youth Cup before both ran the show as their respective England youth sides tasted success later that year.
Four years on and the pair look set to match up in the biggest game in club football, and play alongside each other at Euro 2020.
