Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish remains confident of being called up for England’s squad for this summer’s European Championship despite still waiting for his first cap.
As per the Daily Mail, Grealish credited a chat with John Terry for boosting his confidence after he made a slow start to the campaign.
He said: “I know I haven’t been playing to the standard I know I can. If I can perform the way I can I’ll hopefully push my way into the England team. From being in the Championship, being in the Premier League it is going to take a bit of time.
“Speaking to John Terry the other day, he said it always took him five or six games to get to the standard he knew he could be at and that is the same as me at the moment. I know how good I actually am, how good I can be and I want to start adding goals and assists to my game. I am sure I can force my way in to the England team.”

There aren’t that many international breaks left for Grealish to be called up to play for England and prove his worth to Gareth Southgate.
Southgate has been laying careful plans since the end of the World Cup to ensure England’s progression continues and there doesn’t appear to be much space for throwing in a wild card he hasn’t had a chance to look at into that.
That said, England need an elite playmaker. If Grealish were to improve his output across the rest of the season, Southgate couldn’t help but take note.
