World News – GB – Aston Villa fans smoke as Jack Grealish is named to the bench for England


Jack Grealish starts on the substitutes bench for UEFA Nations League clash against Denmark at Wembley tonight, despite his full debut against Wales a week ago

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish starts the England-Denmark clash on the substitutes’ bench tonight

Almost a week after his impressive debut against Wales, Grealish finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row after missing Belgium’s 2-1 loss on Sunday at Wembley

Grealish once again finds himself behind the pecking order of Chelsea boss at Mason Mount in England, Gareth Southgate, with Marcus Rashford and recalled Harry Kane up front

Grealish is in good shape domestically, playing a leading role in Premier League champion Liverpool’s shock 7-2 defeat last time around

This doesn’t appear to have convinced Southgate that he deserves a first-team role in the Three Lions setup, however, much to the annoyance of Villa fans.

Yet at least that means Grealish and Villa teammate Tyrone Mings – also on the bench – is fresh for Sunday’s trip to Leicester City

There were concerns Grealish might be injured when he was pictured wearing a bandage on his leg against Wales, but Southgate decided to allay his concerns, confirming the Villa star was not taking any hits

With an injury outside the image, Villa fans can’t fathom another decision to omit Grealish

“Again gutted for Jack,” said another while a third fan added: “If you pick an 11 on that bench it beats the starting 11″

« Imagine my surprise, » commented another supporter and a fifth fan said: « Not shocked and not surprised »

« We are really excited with the way Jack has settled into the squad, » Southgate told BBC Five Live « We brought him into the game in Denmark, he has now made his first start , he understands very well how we want to play and the demands of the role

« He fits in really well I know him from working with him in the Under 21s We know he’s a great kid, really nice He enjoys the experience and sees how we want to play

« It’s slightly different from the club (level) and each player has to adapt to it. He is very within the framework and continues to improve his position within the team, that’s for sure »
