Britain’s Talk Sports said on the 14th (Korea Standard Time), “Fans liked Grealish’s dignified behavior in the tunnel video of the English national team and the Australian national team.” Grealish once again showed why he is one of the coolest players in football.
“Grealish scored an assist against Australia, and it was not surprising that the Australian player asked for a uniform after the game. In a tunnel video released by the Australian national team, Martin Boyle approached Grealish and asked for his uniform, and Grealish took off his uniform and presented it as a gift. Then Grealish asked, ‘Can I get yours, too?’ Boyle hesitated for a moment and handed over the uniform. Because he never expected Grealish to want his uniform. It was another dignity that Grealish showed, and the fans liked it,” he added. 스포츠토토
Fans’ responses, released by the media, were “Grealish’s dignified behavior,” “Grealish is not only a great soccer player, but a great person,” and “Real Class.” What a respect,” said Grealish, “a very humble man. It’s much more important to be outside the stadium.”
Grealish started in an A-match friendly against Australia on the 14th. And in the 12th minute of the second half, Grealish’s shot from the penalty box headed in front of the goal and Watkins rushed it in and pushed it in. England was able to win as the score became the winning goal.
“Respect. Jack Grealish and Martin Boyle,” the Australian national team’s official account posted after the match. Boyle was able to get Grealish’s uniform. And the next scene became a hot topic. “Yours too,” Grealish said to Boyle, not leaving as it was. Boyle happily took off his uniform and gave him a high-five with a big smile.
Star players often get requests for uniforms from their opponents. Many players are willing to give up, but sometimes you can see that they don’t accept those from opponents with low reputation. In this context, Boyle never imagined that Grealish would want his uniform. In the video, Boyle was not taking off his uniform until Grealish asked. A word from Grealish melted Boyle’s heart.
