England hero Rooney calls for Aston Villa ace Grealish to start Scotland clash

England legend Wayne Rooney believes Jack Grealish will start Friday's clash with Scotland at Wembley.

The 25-year-old attacker was left on the bench for all of England's win over Croatia on Sunday.

Rooney told Sky Sports News: "I would have liked to have seen Jack Grealish.

"He's a player who is going to grow during this competition and he will be an important player for England.

"I can see a couple of changes for the Scotland game. I think Grealish will probably come in and start.

"But I think they will be a bit more relaxed on Friday, whereas if they didn't win then it would have been more anxious."
