Jack Grealish was voted Man of the Match in England’s 1-0 Euro 2020 warm-up victory against Romania on Sunday evening [Daily Express].
Putting on a dazzling display for the Three Lions, the 25-year-old created the decisive opportunity in the fixture at the Riverside Stadium. Jinking past two opponents, the boyhood Villa man waltzed into the penalty area before being cynically taken out by a Romanian defender, and up stepped Marcus Rashford to convert the spot-kick [BBC].

Set to play a key part in the European Championship for England this summer, no wonder loads of Aston Villa fans took to social media to voice their pleasure at his well-earned Man of the Match accolade.

“What a star #jackgrealish”
“How can you not love him”
