England vs Wales: Jack Grealish produces saucy assist for Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored on his England debut versus Wales

Gareth Southgate named a very experimental England team for tonight's friendly against Wales.

The likes of Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Jadon Sancho and Harry Maguire were all missing from the starting XI ahead of Sunday's UEFA Nations League game against Belgium.

Their omissions meant Dominc Calvert-Lewin and Bukayo Saka were drafted in for their first England caps, while Jack Grealish was handed his first start for the Three Lions.

After a shaky first 25 minutes against Ryan Giggs' Wales, two of Southgate's new boys clicked into gear.

Picking the ball up on the right, Villa star Grealish showcased his class for the first time in an England jersey, delivering a peach of a cross for Calvert-Lewin to head home from close range.

That's Calvert-Lewin's 10th goal of the season for club and country, the Everton striker staking a claim to be the undisputed backup to Harry Kane at Euro 2021.

As for Grealish, the Villa playmaker surely has to be a key man in Southgate's England squad going forward.

The 25-year-old scored two goals and delivered three assists in Villa's 7-2 demolition of Liverpool on the weekend and has been one of the Premier League's best for some time now.

England have been crying out for his creativity and Southgate should seriously consider handing Grealish a starting role against Belgium.

Grealish in action

The Three Lions will go into Sunday's game full of confidence after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Wales.

Wolves centre-back Conor Coady scored his first England goal on 53 minutes to follow up Calvert-Lewin's opener, Danny Ings adding a third with a brilliant overhead kick 10 minutes later.

Some much-needed positivity for Southgate after yet another controversial week for the England squad.
