'Helping Jack Grealish play like Almiron' - Newcastle United fans react to Callum Wilson's England impact

Callum Wilson made a major impact after coming on as a sub in the 6-2 England win over Iran – and Newcastle United fans have been quick to react.

The Newcastle United striker unselfishly set up a goal for Jack Grealish just 13 minutes into his first international game in more than three years today as England convincingly beat Iran 6-2 in Doha, Qatar.

And club-mate Kieran Trippier also put in an assured 90-minute performance at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Fans were quick to praise Wilson while also taking the chance to rib Grealish after his Miguel Almiron jibe last summer.

Grealish had a pop at Premier League Player of the Month nominee Almiron while celebrating Manchester City’s title win last season in a video which went viral. Grealish said team-mate Riyad Mahrez had “played like Almiron”.

Here is the best of the Newcastle United fan reaction.
