Jack Grealish blasted the critics on Monday who accused him of not stepping up when England needed experienced players in the Euro 2020 final penalty shootout against Italy.

The 19-year-old Bukayo Saka’s penalty was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma as England suffered a heartbreaking loss at Wembley. Notably, Saka has never taken a penalty for his club side, Arsenal, but was given the responsibility of taking the all-important fifth kick in the shootout.

“If you’re (Raheem) Sterling or (Jack) Grealish, you cannot sit there and have a young kid [Saka] go up for a penalty ahead of you, you can’t,” Roy Keane told ITV as per Sky Sports. “You cannot let a shy 19-year-old go up in front of you. They have a lot more experience, Sterling has won trophies, they had to get in front of the young kid and stand up.”
