Gary Neville Identifies The "Problem" Jack Grealish Will Have Getting Into The England Team

Gary Neville Identifies The "Problem" Jack Grealish Will Have Getting Into The England Team

Gary Neville has revealed Jack Grealish will have a "problem" getting in the England team if they continue playing with a back three.

But the Aston Villa captain has started Sunday's huge clash with Belgium in the Nations League on the bench.

Neville told Sky Sports it will be hard for Grealish to force his way into Gareth Southgate's best eleven while they play 3-4-3.

"I think there's a bit of a problem for Jack Grealish," he begun per Daily Star.

"If you stick with a 3-4-3, he wouldn't be one of those two midfielders in the middle against the big teams.

When you look at the front three, you've got [Jadon] Sancho, [Marcus] Rashford, [Raheem] Sterling, [Harry] Kane, [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin and more. Where would he get in there?

"He's talented, he's earned his place in the squad and I thought he was brilliant the other night.

"But this system does hamper him. If it was 4-3-3 or 3-5-2, you could see him playing in that system a little bit more."

Jamie Redknapp then chipped in and said he feels Southgate will have a different role for the 25-year-old.

"He played so well, I was so impressed with him," he added.

"But it didn't surprise me [that he was not chosen to start vs Belgium.] We know he can do it at this level. He can do it in the Premier League.

"He can give you a completely different problem when you play against him because he's a dribbler.

"When someone picks up the ball and runs at you, it's so difficult for him to be stopped.

"He may not start every game but he's shown Gareth he can play at this level and he come off if needed for 20-25 minutes.

"I would like to have seen him play today, I must admit, but it's a big opportunity for the other players. It feels like there's a bit of competition in there."

England are currently tied 1-1 with Belgium at half-time.
