Football fans all made the same joke about Mason Mount's shirt as the Chelsea star made a surprise appearance on This Morning.

Mount, 23, popped up on the ITV daytime show on Wednesday to discuss his viral TikTok videos and performances on the pitch. But as his chat with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield got underway, viewers couldn't take their eyes off his choice of attire.

A bearded Mount appeared on the show wearing an oversized striped blue and yellow jumper resembling something you might find in a school PE office's lost and found. Football fans, though, made a different observation about the garment.

They thought Mount's colourful top looked similar to the home shirt of Argentinian giants Boca Juniors, which also has a yellow band across the midriff.

One fan joked: "When you've got to do an interview with This Morning at 11am, but are playing for Boca Juniors in the afternoon." As a Chelsea fan asked: "When did we sell Mason Mount to Boca Juniors?" On a similar vibe, someone else questioned: "Is Mason Mount a Boca Juniors fan?"

Others joked it reminded them of the rugby shirt they had worn at school. One said: "Why is he wearing my school rugby shirt." While a fifth user commented: "My kids PE top was exactly the same as what Mason Mount is wearing."

Mount appeared on This Morning just hours after coming off the bench in England's dismal 4-0 defeat to Hungary on Tuesday night. The former Derby County loanee was brought on with 34 minutes remaining and the score at 1-0 with the aim of helping Gareth Southgate's side get back into the game.

But a comeback didn't materialise as Hungary added three more goals in the last 20 minutes to confirm 10-man England's worst home defeat since 1928. The Three Lions are now bottom of Group A3 in the Nations League after two draws and two defeats from the opening four matches.
