Jack Grealish is looking forward to meeting Aston Villa teammate John McGinn at Euro 2020 – but admits he doesn’t know if he’ll ‘be able to take him that seriously.’

The pair have shone together for Aston Villa under Dean Smith in the English Championship and Premier League but will be rivals this summer. England and Scotland will face each other in the Euro 2020 group stages at Wembley in an exciting match.

It’ll have a huge bearing on who makes it to the knockout stages, but Grealish says both he and McGinn have yet to discuss the match ahead of Scotland’s first major tournament since 1998 (Sun): “We haven’t spoken about the match all that much.

 

“John starts a lot of Scotland games and I don’t know if I’ll be playing at Wembley or not. I hope we get one over on him that day. He’s a great lad and John is so proud to be playing for his country. But I don’t know if I’ll be able to take him that seriously on the pitch!
