Nike Football put a trio of England's most promising next-generation players on the plane to Russia this summer as Phil Foden, Mason Mount and Ryan Sessegnon journeyed across Russia to experience the World Cup with the Swoosh.

From Moscow to Volgograd and back, they watched England take on Tunisia and took in some local culture along the way. Embracing the whirlwind of a World Cup from a fan's point of view, possibly for the last time, the lads got a real taste for the carnival that a World Cup provides, building on their respective experiences with the England youth teams.

Phil Foden (Man City, 18) and Ryan Sessegnon (Fulham, 18) have both had a huge season in English football. Foden playing minutes for Pep Guardiola's Premier League winning side, and Sessegnon tearing up the Championship with promoted Fulham. Mount (Chelsea, 19) spent the season at Vitesse while tasting success with England u19. In four years time all three players could be making their World Cup debuts.

Having all seen success with England at youth international level, with Phil winning the u17 World Cup and Mason & Ryan winning the u19 European Championship, they took time out to sample the atmosphere and work on some exciting Nike projects during the trip.
