Jack Grealish has hit back at Roy Keane, Roy Keane was critical of the senior players for not stepping up and letting 19 year old Bukayo Saka take the penalties. Grealish has said though that he wanted to take a penalty, but it was Gareth Southgate’s call. It was a bitterly disappointing night for England as they failed yet again to win a major tournament, but there has to be pluses taken from this and with the World Cup only 18 months away in Qatar, this will stand this young group of players in good stead for the future.
I said I wanted to take one!!!!
The gaffer has made so many right decisions through this tournament and he did tonight! But I won’t have people say that I didn’t want to take a peno when I said I will… https://t.co/3mBpKyMoUV

It will be very interesting where Jack Grealish will end up this summer, will he be a Villa player at the end of the summer? Or will he join Pep Guardiola’s men at Manchester City?
