England fans troll Almiron by saying are you watching after Jack Grealish goal

England fans have offered a tongue-in-cheek jibe at the expense of Miguel Almiron after Jack Grealish scored his first World Cup goal for Gareth Southgate's side against Iran.

The Manchester City forward came off the bench to slot home a sixth for Gareth Southgate's inspired Three Lions thanks to the work of Callum Wilson – and fans all thought the same thing after the 6-2 triumph.

After Almiron offered a response to Grealish saying that Riyad Mahrez was 'playing like' the Newcastle forward in a poor performance last season, fans asked if he was tuning in.

With Almiron failing to reach the final tournament with Paraguay, one fan wrote: "Almiron are you watching."

A second added: "Almiron who? We’re clear." A third posted: "Where's your world cup goal Almiron?"

A fourth then concluded: "Grealish scoring in the World Cup finals, Almiron sat watching it on tv."

In truth, Almiron dismissed any rivalry with Grealish and actually praised his talent while picking up his Premier League player of the month award.

Speaking to Chronicle Live, he said: "All that incident did really was highlight that when that type of thing happens here it shows the greatness of the Newcastle supporters.

"I actually did not pay too much attention to the comments at first I will be honest because I prefer to just get on with my job and do my work in silence."

In an emotional moment after he found the net, Grealish dedicated his celebration to a young City fan Finlay, who has cerebral palsy, following a recent meeting.

Grealish found the net after Jude Bellingham opened the scoring, Bukayo Saka scored twice and Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford had already got in on the act.

One man delighted to see Grealish get on the scoresheet with Micah Richards, who said on BBC Sport: "I'm so happy because all his time at Man City everybody is talking about his goals and assists. I'm so happy that he's given a chance and he's scored."
