Former Ireland underage international Jack Grealish has finally made his debut for England.

The 20-year-old had played for Ireland at various underage levels before confirming his decision to switch back to his native England last year. Grealish qualified to play for Ireland through his three of his grandparents.

Grealish has a season to forget with Aston Villa. He played 16 times for the team in the Premier League, losing all 16 matches.

The Birmingham native was called up by Gareth Southgate to the England Under-21 squad for the Toulon tournament, and made his debut off the bench against Portugal. England are guaranteed at least three more matches in the tournament so Grealish will hope to start in at least one of the games.

He played for the last 18 minutes as England won their opening game 1-0.
