Fans react on Twitter to Aston Villa star Jack Grealish’s England display

A number of fans from a host of clubs have taken to Twitter to comment on Jack Grealish’s performance as the Aston Villa talisman made his first competitive start for England on Sunday.

The attacking midfielder was superb when running with the ball. And he produced some delicious touches that England were crying out for at times throughout the evening.

Of course, Villa fans were proud of how Grealish played. But they were joined by a number of rival supporters in lauding the 25-year-old on social media during and after the game.

There was even an admission from a Birmingham City fan regarding his display.

Here is how some of the fans reacted to Grealish’s performance…
