The creative midfielder is set to wear the number 7 shirt for the Three Lions during the competition this summer.

Grealish will always associate the number with former Three Lions captain Beckham, who is an icon of the sport.

"What young lad didn't look up to David Beckham? I certainly did. If I have half the career he had, then I'll be over the moon. He had a lot of great moments but the goal against Greece to send England to the tournament (2010 World Cup) stands out," said Grealish.

"When I got the No 7 shirt I got so many messages from family and friends saying they were going out straight away to buy a shirt.

"The No 7 was a bit of an iconic number in England terms. So many great players have worn the shirt and hopefully I can follow in their footsteps and perform well in it."
