Jack Grealish is a mighty fine footballer.
Sure, the first £100 million Englishman hasn’t had the best of seasons since swapping Aston Villa for Manchester City last summer, but no one can deny that he’s ridiculously talented.
In 2020/21, Grealish was one of the finest players in Europe, finishing with seven goals and 12 assists from 26 appearances across all competitions.
He then went on to play a crucial role in England‘s run to the final of Euro 2020, famously setting up Harry Kane for the Three Lions’ second goal against Germany in the last-16.
That’s why City coughed up an enormous amount of cash to acquire his services and next season could be where we see Grealish explode in the sky blue jersey.
But while his footballing ability cannot be questioned, Grealish’s geography knowledge certainly can be.
Why do we say that? Well, a video has surfaced on social media in which the City playmaker looks absolutely baffled when asked to point out where he’s from in England.
Liverpool‘s Jordan Henderson and Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Conor Coady tried to help out their colleague, but the sight of the map was all too much for Grealish…

“What is that England?” Grealish said, before adding as he walked away: “I’ve got no chance!”
After watching their attempts at helping fail, Henderson, Coady and Southampton‘s James Ward-Prowse all burst out laughing.
To be fair to Birmingham-born Grealish, at least he didn’t put the pin in somewhere like Carlisle or Cornwall and look even more foolish as a result.
It’s certainly not the first time Grealish has had something of a brain fart on camera either.
During Euro 2020, he was told that former Villa boss Dean Smith referred to him as an ‘encyclopedia of football’.
Sadly, Grealish had absolutely no idea what that meant…

Hopefully he now knows what it means.
