Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish will start for England in their Euro 2020 clash against Germany tomorrow, according to Darren Anderton.
Speaking to GentingBet about the possibility of the 25-year-old starting at Wembley, the former Tottenham midfielder stated: “I thought Grealish, and Saka were outstanding against the Czech Republic, especially Saka, I would not be surprised to see both starting against Germany, though it’s such a tough decision Gareth has to make on Foden given his quality.” [via Birmingham Mail].
Should AVFC captain Grealish start vs Germany on Tuesday?
Of course, Grealish has more than earned his shot at international stardom following an astounding 2020/21 campaign in which he registered 19 goal contributions in 27 games, with seven goals and 12 assists to his name [Transfermarkt].
Anderton rightly alluded to the 25-year-old’s commendable display versus the Czech Republic last week, recording a crucial assist in a 1-0 win for the Three Lions [BBC] after coming into the starting line-up.
While Grealish is well worthy of a shout to take to the field from the beginning against Germany, not everyone harmoniously agrees that he will get that opportunity. In light of these recent comments, many Aston Villa fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions on whether their captain will be given the nod on Tuesday evening by Gareth Southgate.
Villa fans react:
Replying to popular outlet Aston Villa News on Twitter, here is how some Clarets fans summarised their opinions on Grealish’s chances of starting at Wembley:
“I think Southgate will bring him on in the 70th minute. This is gonna be the most defensive squad to date. #flat #boring.”
