Southgate Is Hoping Grealish Will Break His Duck

Southgate is hoping Grealish will break his duck. Southgate wants Manchester City playmaker Jack Grealish to get his first international goal and join England’s other goal scorers.

During the Three Lions’ journey to the Euro 2020 final, the 26-year-old became a fan favorite, and City paid Aston Villa a British record £100 million for his services shortly after the tournament.

Southgate expects the 15-cap international will score his first goal for his country this month in qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.

“I think he recognised with us we asked certain things of him, in terms of when he first joined us, the pressing,” Southgate said of Grealish, who made his senior debut in September 2020.

“I think the big challenge with us is he’s 15 games without a goal, so the big challenge is to start registering those numbers that our other wide players have been able to produce over a period of time. There’s no reason he can’t do that.

“He’s physically definitely in a better place. He’s able to play the midweek games now.

“When we had him at the end of the season, he was only able to train two days in every three, so completely different situation to the European Championships, that’s for sure.”
