Jack Grealish's First Chance To Join The England Squad Hasn't Really Gone To Plan

He may have made his choice between Ireland and England but that doesn't mean Jack Grealish is free from one of the other big debates in international football, the club vs country row. Roy Hodgson will name his squad to face Estonia and Lithuania later today but Grealish will not be included with international clearance not coming through in time.

Despite that, Hodgson was keen to get the 20 year old involved in the England setup and he extended an invite for Grealish to train with the squad next week. According to the Telegraph that won't now happen after Tim Sherwood stepped in and put a halt to that.


Aston Villa are less than keen for Grealish to head for England training when he could remain in Birmingham to work on a fitness regime that would make up for much of the pre-season training that he missed through injury. There has apparently been an 'amicable agreement' that Grealish now won't join the squad and will instead look to the friendly's against Spain and France in November to try and convince Hodgson that he is worthy of a spot in his squad for Euro 2016.


When Hodgson did get around to announcing his squad Grealish was predictably absent with Liverpool's Danny Ings and Tottenham's Dele Alli being given the chance to earn their first caps.
