Aston Villa fans have been calling for Gareth Southgate to include Jack Grealish in the England squad for quite some time now.
Their talisman has been impressive since returning to the Premier League, getting eight goals and five assists across all competitions.
It seems as though this may have been enough for the 24-year-old to force his way into Southgate’s thinking, as he and Danny Ings could be given the chance to show they deserve a place in the Euro 2020 squad, as reported by The Telegraph.

There are various fans who are excited about the prospect of seeing their homegrown talent strutting his stuff with England’s best.
He has been Villa’s standout player this campaign, as indicated by the fact that his average WhoScored rating of 7.37 is the highest among Dean Smith’s men.
One fan also feels that he can be a standout player for his nation, saying “Grealish, England’s best player at the Euros. Remember this tweet”.
FINALLY WE GET TO SEE GREALISH PLAYING WITH QUALITY PLAYERS AROUND HIM

However, not everyone is looking at this with such a high level of excitement, feeling that the fan favourite is still being underestimated.
Call yourself a Premier League expert? How much did each of these big-money January signings cost?
One stated that he is “their best player”, while another has compared Southgate’s stance on Grealish to “me saying I’d offer Megan Fox auditions to be my girlfriend”.
Despite the frustration about how long it has taken, Villa fans may finally get the chance to see their talisman in an England shirt.
“Auditions” and “considers” is exactly why this man is a class A clown. Can’t wait for England to flop badly at the Euro and for this clown to get sacked

Like me saying I’d offer Megan Fox auditions to be my girlfriend. Should be first name on the sheet with Maddison second.
