Former England winger Paul Merson believes Jack Grealish does NOT fit into England’s formation and it would cause a ‘problem’ to play him tonight.
Gareth Southgate won plenty of praise from the former Arsenal man over his selection for the Euro 2020 opening win over Croatia.
He told Sky Sports: “Southgate has to be careful with his selection against Scotland as he does not want to bring unwanted pressure on himself by making too many changes.
“If he brings in Jack Grealish and he rips it up, people are going to want him to play every game. But he will not play against Scotland.
“If you play Phil Foden, Grealish, and Mason Mount all in the same team, then when will England be getting the ball back?
“Sterling played well, Foden showed glimpses, Harry Kane struggled as he kept on coming short into a packed midfield, where he was never going to find space, he needed to go the other way and stay up top if he wants to get involved with the team.
“We just need to get him chances, but even if he does not score in his first four games of the tournament, he will still play in the fifth.”
