Gareth Southgate should exploit compact opponents by utilizing Jack Grealish

England weren’t at their usual best against Iceland despite earning a narrow win kind courtesy Raheem Sterling’s strike from the penalty spot. Chris Sutton envisage below par performance in future matches against teams who would choose to sit back and decide not to commit men forward.

Sutton wants Grealish to turn out against such opponents due to his trickery and ability to spray passes in close spaces. Despite admitting disappointment over no show for the Aston Villa forward he wants Southgate to consider playing the forward against compact teams.
