Roy Keane has hailed Jack Grealish and has revealed what he “loves” about former Manchester United target following the attacker’s display in England’s Nations League defeat to Belgium.

Gareth Southgate’s side failed to qualify for the Nations League finals after facing a 2-0 defeat to Belgium on Sunday evening. However, Grealish has played a key role in the team’s recent friendlies against Wales and the Republic of Ireland.

And Keane, who previously worked with Aston Villa captain, has shared his praise, saying: “He takes risks. What I love about Jack – and I worked with him at Aston Villa – is his courage.

“Wanting the ball in tight areas, dealing with the ball, getting you up the pitch, winning free-kicks, courage, he’s quicker than you think.

“The way he’s improved over the past six months has been fantastic. We keep talking about England winning something or getting to the next level, I think they need a player like Jack to do that. He was outstanding.”
