Jack Grealish handed maiden England call-up after Man United & Spurs stars drop out

As confirmed online this evening, Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has been called up for England’s latest round of fixtures.

England squad revealed

Gareth Southgate’s men are set to return to action this weekend.

In the country’s first taste of competitive action since November of last year, the Three Lions will get their Nations League campaign underway with a pair of outings.

First up comes a meeting with Iceland on Saturday the 5th of September. And this will be followed 3 days later by a trip to Copenhagen to take on Denmark.

As such, ahead of his side’s return to the pitch, Southgate last week named his latest England squad.

There were a host of familiar faces present, as well as some surprise omissions, with Phil Foden and Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips having been handed their first-ever call-ups.

Grealish in

And, as outlined above, on the back of some disappointing injury news for the Three Lions, another Premier League star has today benefitted, courtesy of his maiden England call.

The player in question? Jack Grealish.

In a post across the country’s social media platforms a short time ago, it was confirmed that Aston Villa captain Grealish will be part of Gareth Southgate’s panel to take on Iceland and Denmark:

Congratulations, @JackGrealish 👏

Welcome to the #ThreeLions!

Grealish’s addition comes on the back of a pair of others, in the form of Marcus Rashford and Harry Winks, being forced out of England’s setup:

Manchester United attacker Rashford, meanwhile, has since taken to Twitter to express his disappointment at not being fit enough to line out for his country over the coming week:

Gutted 😔 never want to let this team down but these fixtures just came a little too soon for me. I tried my best but I have to focus on starting the season at my strongest for club and country. Good luck boys, I’ll be cheering you on from home 🦁♥️ @England pic.twitter.com/2OMHKPFLpm
