Jack Grealish earns first England call-up

Aston Villa Skipper Jack Grealish has been called up to the England squad for the Nations League matches against Iceland and Denmark.

Marcus Rashford and Harry Winks have withdrawn due to injury, the Football Association has announced.


It is Grealish’s first call-up to the England senior squad.


The Aston Villa captain has previously represented England at Under-21 level and was a member of Gareth Southgate’s Toulon tournament-winning squad of 2016.


He previously played for the Republic of Ireland Under-21s before opting to switch to England.


“I have decided to give my allegiance to England,” said Grealish at the time.


“It was not an easy decision as Ireland has a special place with me through my family. However, I have decided to represent my country of birth.”
