refers to

Jack Grealish

as a “great player” while saying that if England include him in more games they will win.

Grealish had his sixth and seventh game for his country when England went against Austria and Romania in the Euro 2020 warm-ups, as he was called up to be part of

’s Rashford, who met the target in the penalty Grealish was gifted when they locked horns with Romania, has praised the 25-year-old and believes he should get regular starts.

Notwithstanding the rivalry that may start between the duo for a role on the left when the European Championships starts against Croatia on Sunday, Rashford told reporters:

“He is a great player. He will definitely grow and grow in an England shirt.

“We know from training and the Premier League what he can and for us, it’s just about allowing him to reach his potential in an England shirt.

"We will win more games with him in the team.”

When Grealish contributed to Aston Villa ending the Premier League season sitting 11th, he earned a spot in Gareth’s squad, despite missing the last few months of the campaign because of a shin injury.

Rashford has been named the captain of the national team in the battle against Romania and he told ITV Sport:

“It’s definitely a great moment for me.

“It’s something you dream of when you’re a kid and today I managed to accomplish that dream.”
