John McGinn would love nothing more than for Jack Grealish to join him at Euro 2020 – but he hopes there isn’t an Aston Villa reunion when Scotland face England.
The national team is preparing for its first major tournament since 1998 next month as Scotland take to Euro 2020 action. Steve Clarke’s side will face England at Wembley in one of their three matches, meaning McGinn may face Aston Villa teammate Grealish, if the latter is fit.
McGinn hopes Grealish does pass the pain barrier, albeit not to cause Scotland trouble (Four Four Two): “[Grealish] is the most talented player I’ve ever played with. It’s pleasing that he’s been showing it on the international stage, too. We’re very fortunate to have him at Aston Villa.
“His performance against Belgium made the world sit up and take notice of his ability. England are lucky to have such a unique player. My hope is that he stays fit and goes to the Euros, because I get on so well with him. I know how much it would mean to him. But Gareth Southgate is welcome to rest him for the Scotland game…”
