Man City star Grealish snaps: England criticism complete overreaction

Manchester City ace Jack Grealish has rejected World Cup criticism of England after their 0-0 draw with the USA on Friday.

Grealish looked the most likely to make something happen after he replaced Raheem Sterling on 68 minutes but England ultimately had to settle for a point that nonetheless keeps them in control of Group B.

And he believes some of the criticism after Friday night's stalemate went too far, telling talkSPORT: "Just in general, I think there was a big overreaction.

"Apart from Spain, we are the top scorers in the tournament. I can't think off the top of my head if there is anyone who has scored more than six.

"The other day against Iran we were the best thing since sliced bread, scoring six goals.

"Then we go a game without scoring and I think there was a bit of an overreaction but that's what you get sometimes playing for England."
