Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has not been included in Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad (via @England).
The Three Lions take on Montenegro and Kosovo in Euro 2020 qualifiers later in November, and many thought that Grealish deserved to be called-up to the for the first time (Daily Mail).
Should Jack Grealish be in the England squad?
Indeed, the midfielder has been in excellent form for Villa of late, scoring two goals and providing two assists in his last five appearances for the Premier League new boys (via Transfermarkt).
However, he has once again been overlooked by the England manager, who has instead selected Fabian Delph, Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, Declan Rice, James Maddison, Ross Barkley and Harry Winks as his midfielders (@England).
Southgate has spoken about Grealish’s omission, saying that he is “very close” to being selected and that he wouldn’t hesitate to bring him in if someone in the squad picks up an injury (via @iandennisbbc).
Plenty of Aston Villa fans are fuming that their skipper hasn’t been selected for England, with many taking to Twitter to express their disappointment. Here is what some had to say…
What a joke.

Its pathetic given the lack of quality picked ahead of him. Southgate at many Villa games so really cannot understand it

Barkley and Winks? Delph? Southgate has gone native, he’s not picking on form he’s picking favourites – if I was Jack, I’d be picking up the phone to Mick McCarthy UTV!
