Gary Neville says Jack Grealish 'has country in his hands' and can be part of secret England formula to win Euro 2020

JACK GREALISH can be KEY to England winning the Euros, says Machester United legend Gary Neville.

The Aston Villa star, 25, made his full tournament debut against Czech Republic at Wembley on Tuesday night.

And former England right-back Neville reckons the maverick playmaker can help take the Three Lions all the way – with a solid defensive block behind him.

Speaking on ITV, Neville said: "Gareth Southgate has got to think how to win this tournament and outplay Spain, Belgium, France.

"It's sensible to think we can win it a different way.

"Jack wins free-kicks and penalties which England were good at last time [at 2018 World Cup].

"We need six at the back to keep the clean sheets and the four in attack to go and win the games."

Neville added: "He's a player within any game to take responsibility and has the desire to get on the ball.

"Honestly I think he has the country in his hands.

"They want that Wayne Rooney moment in 2004, Gazza in 1990 – I hope he delivers.


"That mischievious smile, he believes in himself.

"He could [set] this tournament alight for England."

Grealish sat down with ITV prior to the game and described starting for the Three Lions as the 'one of the best moments' of his career.

He said: "I always want to be on the pitch. I love that expectation, I thrive off it.

"I like to entertain fans, I loved watching Gazza.

"My YouTube searches at home are of him. He reminds me of myself, he loved a football at his feet.

"I will treat it like any other game – but I want to score more than in any other game."
