Jack Grealish revealed he is itching to get on the pitch for England and prove his worth on the European stage. England takes on Scotland in a highly anticipated Group B clash at Euro 2020. There were cheers of ‘Super Jack’ echoing around Wembley when Grealish came out to warm-up against Croatia. He was an unused sub in the opener. And now he is hoping he will get his opportunity against Scotland on Friday.
“I’m so desperate just to get on the pitch and prove to people just how good I am,” England midfielder Jack Grealish said. “These are the type of games that I thrive off. Not even just in this tournament, I’ve made a name for myself [in other big games] during my career. I’m desperate to be involved. But the main thing is the team get the three points and carries on our good start.”
Marcus Rashford was also named on the bench against Croatia much to the surprise of many. The Manchester United forward said that he is not too fussed and would sacrifice limited game time for Euro 2020 glory. Unlike Grealish, Rashford came on halfway through the second half against Croatia.
“Of course, every single player wants to play but only 11 can start and when you’ve got a talented squad of 26, there’s going to be a lot who are going to miss out,” said Rashford. “But whether you are on the bench or starting, it’s clear you need everyone in order to go a long distance in a tournament.”
