Jack Grealish posts heartfelt Tweet after England debut, Aston Villa teammate responds

The 24-year-old took his bow in the goalless draw against Denmark.

Aston Villa star Jack Grealish made his England debut in the 0-0 draw in Copenhagen last night and took to Twitter afterwards with a heartfelt post.

The call-up to the national squad has been a long time coming for the man who played his youth football with the Republic of Ireland.

Having switched to England at under-21 level it was anticipated that he’d almost certainly make the step up to the senior ranks at some point.

He has been forced to wait patiently though and wasn’t actually included in the original squad selected by boss Gareth Southgate.

Marcus Rashford’s withdrawal handed him the opportunity though and he will now hope to become a permanent fixture for the national team.

Grealish was an unused sub in Iceland during Saturday’s 1-0 win but was introduced in Denmark for the 14 minutes.

Afterwards, Grealish took to Twitter to speak of his delight and also earned a congratulatory message from teammate Tyrone Mings.

 

The 24-year-old Aston Villa captain was instrumental for the Villans as they retained their Premier League status on the final day of last season.

During 2019/20 he scored 10 goals and registered eight assists having helped the club back into the Premier League during the previous campaign.

Future

Many believed Grealish should have been an inclusion in the original squad named by Southgate and the challenge now is to ensure he is a permanent member of the squad.

England’s lack of creativity was highlighted last night in Copenhagen and the Three Lions need players like Grealish.

The Villa performer is comfortable on the ball, composed and always puts in a shift for the cause.

England could do with a player like Grealish at the Euros next summer and hopefully, Southgate will hand him more chances to shine in the future.
