Gareth Southgate wants more from Jack Grealish

England boss Gareth Southgate has demanded that midfielder Jack Grealish gives more while with the national team.

Grealish was introduced by Southgate 18 minutes from time for Mason Mount in their draw against Germany on Tuesday night and the manager was asked if he saw the Manchester City man as a starter o an impact player.

"I think he can be both. If we didn't trust him we wouldn't put him on the pitch with 20 minutes to go in the belief he can make a difference," Southgate said.

"The start of the game, the challenge to the wide players to attack, defend, try to score goals at a high tactical level and you've got to be spot on.

"I think that's an area Jack can get better at and what he did do was carry the ball and at that moment of the game as it opens up there's a little more space, a little more opportunity, and also that freshness. The impact that he and Jarrod Bowen had was really important in those attacking areas. There is a good challenge there, good competition for places and we've got to keep pushing them."

Germany had taken the lead in the game and looked to be on their way to victory but Harry Kane won and scored the spot-kick which earned a 1-1 draw and prevented England from slipping to back-to-back defeats in Group A3.
