English winger Jack Grealish recently appeared in an interview ahead of England’s clash against Italy. It is a fixture, the side needs to win to avoid Nations League relegation.
The Manchester City man is well aware of this situation. However, Grealish who looks forward to the World Cup is up for the challenge.
“I think for us, it’s something we’re obviously aware of, but something that we’re all embracing,” Grealish said.
“Especially, I’m not going to speak for the manager. Then there’s obviously certain places and numbers that are still up for grabs. We’re just all training as normal.
“We have two matches now that are going to be very tough opposition and this is really like your pre-World Cup camp.
“We were saying before that before the Euros we had a good few weeks of training sessions, good friendlies, and we’re not going to get that this time.
“But everyone’s in the same boat, so it’s something that we need to embrace and look forward to.”
Furthermore, the former Aston villa man is looking forward to a starting position. He insisted that he is not happy with a position on the bench.
“I’d love to be (starting) but then again I know what an impact I can bring from the bench,” English winger Jack Grealish added. “I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘that’s what I am – someone who just comes on’.
“I started one game in the Euros and got an assist, which I was over the moon about.
“The manager’s the manager and if he and his staff decide to play me, I’ll give my all and also if I’m on the bench, I’m ready to come on as an impact sub.”
