Gareth Southgate to check on Mason Mount’s mental state before starting the Chelsea midfielder in crucial last-16 tie against Germany… and England boss admits he will leave the decision until ‘as late as possible’











Gareth Southgate will check on Mason Mount’s mental well-being before deciding whether his key midfielder can start Tuesday’s knock-out clash against Germany.

Mount and Ben Chilwell are currently self-isolating and training away from the rest of the squad after coming into close contact with Scotland midfielder Billy Gilmour, who tested positive for Covid-19, following the 0-0 draw at Wembley. 

Chelsea left back Chilwell is unlikely to start against Germany but his clubmate Mount would be an almost certain starter in normal circumstances.

But the fact the midfielder can’t be involved in tactical sessions at St George’s Park has left his involvement as a starter in doubt.

Mount and Chilwell, who have been involved in Zoom team meetings, will be available for selection on the bench as their quarantine period expires at midnight on the day of the game.

But Southgate insists he must check on Mount’s state of mind before deciding whether to risk starting him.

Southgate said whether he startts depends how he has adapted to training away from the team

‘It’s been quite complicated. In the main they’ve had to work entirely on their own,’ said Southgate.

‘There’s not only the training but the psychological part of that as well, of course. 

‘Yes, we will leave it as late as possible.’
