England star says he definitely wants Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish on his team in training
England and Everton star Dominic Calvert-Lewin has claimed Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish is someone he definitely wants on his team in training games.
Both are included in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man England squad for Euro 2020 and will be dreaming of international success at a major tournament this summer.
Fortunately, Grealish is back in time from an injury to be with the Three Lions group.
The 25-year-old Villa captain starred in England’s two recent international friendlies, so will hope he’s done enough to start the nation’s first Euro 2020 fixture against Croatia.
Striker Calvert-Lewin, 24, has picked out international teammate Grealish for praise.
“For me, [Grealish] is a top player. If you’re playing 5-a-side you definitely want him on your team,” Calvert-Lewin said when discussing who’s impressed him in England training.
Grealish can be a talisman for England
If Southgate lets Grealish express himself at the Euros, there could be some fireworks.
He’s unplayable at times in a Villa shirt with his pace, dribbling and skill. Additionally, he’s able to replicate that in an England shirt.
The versatile star was brilliant this season for his club as a left-winger. He scored seven goals and setting up 12 assists in 27 appearances across all competitions.
However, there are signs of him playing a more central attacking midfield role in the England set up.
