Mason Mount was spotted singing God Save the Queen as England took to the pitch to face off against Iran in their first challenge at the 2022 World Cup. The lyrics of the anthem changed to God Save the King following the Her late Majesty’s death in September. Eagle-eyed fans noted the mishap and teased the England player, with supporter @andrewdickens jokingly questioning: “Who’s going to tell him?”

 

@JustinSaysThis said: “This is like when I will date paperwork 2022 until February next year.”

And @jshecket teased: “God save our gracious Kwing.”

Others expressed their sympathy as they admitted they still struggled with the change in lyrics after having grown up singing the God Save the Queen version.

@pommylee said: “Can’t blame him, to be honest, I’m still not used to it.”

 

@CyprusSuzie commented: “Mason Mount singing god save the Queen! Where have you been the last 3 months #Godsavetheking.”

@o_madida accompanied their Tweet with a clip of coach Gareth Southgate clapping his hands and dancing: “Mason Mount and the boys still singing “God Save the Queen”. Poor King Charles.”

And @lee_davidse said: “Mason Mount has to put in a blinder today. Needs to make up for singing God save the Queen.”

England asserted superiority with three goals in the first half of the match, with Bellingham, Saka and Sterling scoring in quick succession.
