Jack Grealish & Ben Chilwell stunned by West Brom star Sam Johnstone
West Brom star Sam Johnstone made the headlines this week during England’s big 5-0 win against Andorra.
The Baggies stopper claimed an assist by launching a long throw to Jack Grealish who did the rest to cap off the three points.
Ben Chilwell has been watching the highlights with Grealish this week, and both were left stunned by the power on show.
Speaking on the official England Twitter account, Chilwell started the praise for Johnstone and his assist.
“It’s a joke from Sam though, isn’t it?”
Grealish agreed and admitted that the goal was mostly down to the quick thinking of the stopper who shared what he was thinking after the long pass.
“I owe that one to Sam. He said to me when, as soon as he threw it, he was just hoping that you were going to go by yourself so he’d get the assist.”
The quick thinking and the absolute power on show from Johnstone was simply outrageous as the Three Lions cruised to victory.
Grealish still had quite a lot to do once receiving the ball, but without the long throw, the chance would never have been there for him to run at his men in the final third with that much space.
All Baggies fans will have been watching with a huge smile on their faces, as Johnstone got yet another deserve cap from Gareth Southgate.
We’re hoping that moments like this convince the stopper that he doesn’t have to leave The Hawthorns in order to get recognition ahead of the World Cup.
Promotion to the Premier League will likely be needed for him to sign a new deal, and we hope that moments such as this prompt The Albion to move quicker.
