Fans Spotted What Jack Grealish Thought Of Gareth Southgate's Tactics Against Denmark

Fans Spotted What Jack Grealish Thought Of Gareth Southgate's Tactics Against Denmark

Jack Grealish made his long-awaited debut for England in their Nations League clash against Denmark.

The 24-year-old has been unfortunate to miss out on numerous occasions of late, despite impressing in the Premier League with Aston Villa, but he finally got his chance to shine in Copenhagen, coming on as a 75th minute substitute.

He replaced another debutant, Kalvin Phillips, in the midfield as Gareth Southgate's side tried to unlock a solid Denmark back-line.

Grealish, however, appeared somewhat confused by his manager's tactical instructions as he entered the field of play.

As you can see in the footage above, Grealish shrugs his shoulders after putting two fingers up; a sign that he may have struggled to understand Southgate's insight.

Despite the introduction of Aston Villa's best performer last season, England couldn't find a way through Denmark's compact defence and the game ended 0-0.

That being said, Grealish made an instant impact when he came on. In fact, he created more chances in his 14 minute cameo than Jadon Sancho, Harry Kane, Kalvin Phillips, and Declan Rice combined.

Southgate expressed his delight at Grealish's short, but sweet performance in his post-match press conference.

"Jack did fine, he had one lovely run into the penalty area that I thought he was going to get a shot away," he said.

"He's dipped his toes, I think importantly for him he's had the chance to work with us and see the intensity that we work at."

Grealish, meanwhile, thanked Southgate for giving him the chance to represent his country.

"I was actually a bit emotional," he told Sky Sports after the game. "It is something that you dream of, every child in England dreams of it since they were a little kid - playing for the England senior team.

"I was so privileged coming on and it was a shame we couldn't win in the end.

"I want to thank [manager] Gareth [Southgate] himself for giving me the opportunity and I hope it is the first of many."
