The brilliant Chelsea academy of the last decade or so is set to be on display later this month when the World Cup gets underway.

While the products have not always gone to achieve greatness as part of Chelsea, their abilities are often on show not too far away.

The World Cup in Qatar will see nine players who have come from the famous Cobham setup representing their nations. Here’s who will be on show.

Mason Mount

Perhaps the face of everything that’s good about the Chelsea academy, Mason Mount will no doubt be an important part of England’s efforts to win it all this winter.

Conor Gallagher

Somewhat more of a surprise call up for Gareth Southgate’s side, Conor Gallagher’s impact is more likely to come off the bench in Qatar.

Ethan Ampadu

Currently on loan at Spezia, Ethan Ampadu is likely to start for Wales in Group B, where a matchup with England awaits.

Declan Rice

The final England representative is a player earning his stripes away from Stamford Bridge, although Declan Rice is frequently linked with a move back to the club.

Andreas Christensen

Despite things ending on a sour note between Chelsea and Andreas Christensen, the Denmark international has developed into a great defender for both club and country.

Tariq Lamptey

The wing-back was sold due to having Reece James in his way from a starting role at Chelsea, and that same process has taken place at international level. Tariq Lamptey will represent Ghana this winter.

Ike Ugbo

The Canadian international has enjoyed a regular run of minutes in Ligue 1 since leaving the Blues, and will be hoping to cause some upsets alongside Alphonso Davies.

Nathan Ake

After the Blues made an effort to sign Nathan Ake back this summer, he stayed as a semi-regular at Manchester City. He will hope to represent Netherlands this month.

Jamal Musiala

Looking more and more like one who got away for club and country these days, Jamal Musiala is likely to be a starter for Germany after an impressive season at Bayern Munich.
