Jack Grealish always struggled to convince coach Gareth Southgate that he was a talented player. After the match against Belgium, the 25-year-old midfielder’s value is perhaps recognized.
However, captain Aston Villa was only given the chance by coach Southgate because of the injured players. Grealish then stuck on the England bench, despite playing well against Wales. The British media immediately put pressure on coach Southgate, asking the manager to be less conservative and to trust this card more.
However, coach Southgate still proved tough. He only put his faith in Grealish in recent matches. However, the Aston Villa midfielder did not disappoint the strategist.
England coach Gareth Southgate also praised Grealish, which has rarely happened since the 25-year-old midfielder was summoned to the national team. In front of the world’s leading rival and possessing many stars, Grealish played fearless football. He also maximizes his creative qualities through sharp passes.
England lost to the Belgians and were eliminated from the Nations League, but Grealish had a successful match. He proves to coach Southgate that he has the talent and the temperament to play the main soccer field in the future.
However, coach Southgate has reason to be satisfied with Grealish, who likes to play with the ball throughout the game. This player’s dribbling phase brings discomfort to MU defenders, causing them to constantly make mistakes with him.
In 5 matches in Nations League, England scored 3 goals, of which 2 times they broke the opponent’s net thanks to the penalties. The bad statistics above show that England lacks a creative and fearless player like Grealish.
In Belgium, England fell in front of the host, and said goodbye to the semi-final ticket of Natiosn League. However, this was a match where Grealish sent a message to coach Southgate. So that this military leader knew he should not waste talent like himself.
