England ace Mason Mount meets niece, 3, for first time at World Cup in sweet moment

Mason Mount was reunited with his family for the first time in more than three years following England's 6-2 win over Iran at the Qatar World Cup earlier this week (November 21).

The Chelsea ace, 23, shared a heartwarming moment with his sister Stacey and was able to meet his three year old niece for the very first time.

Mason's sister lives in Australia, a country that has been under strict Covid restrictions for much of the last few years. Luckily, now restrictions have eased, the family-of-four has been able to fly out to Qatar and cheer Mason on in person.

Manager Gareth Southgate treated his players by allowing them to meet with their loved ones in the stands following the resounding win.

It was then that Mason, who recently announced he was single, was able to embrace his sister and meet the new addition to his family, Stacey's daughter Poppy.

Taking to Instagram after the match, Stacey wrote: "After 3 1/2 years, I got to see my little bro and Poppy meet her uncle Mason for the first time and what a day!

"I cannot even express what a proud big sister I am. All these years of hard work and dedication.

"Dad doesn't mind you kicking the football at the garage now. You truly deserve this Mason Mount. How lucky I am to get to watch you play for the first time in years at the World Cup."

It appears as though uncle Mason has made a good first impression with his niece as a photo uploaded by Stacey showed the pair sharing a big cuddle.

The 23 year old could be seen smiling from ear to ear. He looked equally as happy to be reunited with his sister as the pair posed for a selfie together.

The Mount family were appropriately decked out in their England replica shirts with "Mount 19" on the back and although not on the scoresheet, the midfielder was involved in everything that was good on the pitch.

He and his teammates were back in action again on Friday night against USA but unfortunately, they couldn't repeat the same heroics as they played out a dull 0-0.

Reacting to the stalemate, Mount said: "It was tough to play our stuff, they have a very physical midfield and a team where they can play and great individual players.

"It wasn't easy but we stuck with it and we tried to play our stuff, with maybe a little bit of a lack of technical ability in the end in the final third with that final pass or shot to create a chance.

"But it's a clean sheet, we look at the positives and it's a point gained in the big picture and it's always tough to win every single group game. We want to win every game, but the focus goes onto winning that last game.

"You look at the bigger picture, not many teams win every single game in the group. The most important thing is to get through and win that last game, we're at the top and that's the big focus now."
