Jack Grealish Posed For A Photo And Gave Young Fan His Boots After Devastating Euro 2020 Final Loss


Jack Grealish Posed For A Photo And Gave Young Fan His Boots After Devastating Euro 2020 Final Loss

Jack Grealish took time to pose with a young fan, and even gave him his boots, despite the fact he and England had just lost the Euro 2020 final to Italy.


Grealish was the people's champion during the Euros, as the player every fan wanted Gareth Southgate to play more and more often.

The Aston Villa player was mostly used off the bench, to rapturous applause, and one woman at Wembley on Sunday was particularly excited, as she held up a "Mrs Jack Grealish" Manchester United shirt.


He came on during the 99th minute of the game but unfortunately ended up on the losing side, as Italy won on penalties in the first final the England's men team had reached in 55 years.

Despite the defeat, in the cruelest way possible, Grealish still found time to stop for a young fan after the game and gave the youngster his boots.


The Villa captain stood on the half way line with his teammates as five of Gareth Southgate's side stepped forward to take penalties.

After Harry Kane and Harry Maguire had both scored, the latter with a brilliant penalty, Marcus Rashford missed his and Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka had theirs saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Grealish didn't take one and the 25-year-old, along with other senior players, were criticised for not stepping forward to take.

However the former Republic of Ireland under 21 took to social media to reveal that he had actually volunteered to step up for a penalty.


The former Notts County loanee also posted on social media about how devastated he was at the loss, putting into perspective just how amazing his gesture of stopping for a picture after the game was.

In the semi-final Grealish was subbed on in the second half but taken off half way through extra time when Southgate decided to defend the lead.


Grealish, like many of his teammates, really is a class act!
