Manchester City star Jack Grealish met up with West Ham duo Jarrod Bowen and Paul Nevin at the England training camp at St George’s Park yesterday.
Bowen earned his first call-up to the England national team squad when Gareth Southgate selected him for the upcoming nations league fixtures against Hungary (twice), Germany and Italy.

The 25-year-old West Ham star has been in sensational form at the London Stadium this season.
Meanwhile, Jack Grealish has made a slow start to life at The Etihad with Manchester City following his £100 million move from Aston Villa last summer.
Grealish and Bowen link up at England training camp
Both players are well known for their flair, creativity and exuberance on the pitch.
Hopefully we get to see the Hammers and Man City stars strutting their stuff together at some point over the next couple of weeks.
It wasn’t long ago when the two faced off against each other at the London Stadium.
Jarrod Bowen scored twice to give West Ham a 2-0 lead at half-time. Manchester City’s title hopes were faltering but Jack Grealish inspired his team to a brilliant comeback.
The ex-Aston Villa ace was absolutely brilliant for City and finally showed why Pep Guardiola paid so much money to bring him to The Etihad.
He was taking on West Ham single-handedly at times whilst many of his teammates were surprisingly off form.
The match ended 2-2. Man City went on to win the league by a solitary point. And Grealish alluded to that when linking up with Bowen and Paul Nevin at the England training camp yesterday:
“You nearly killed us the other week didn’t you, it was him actually (pointing at Bowen).”
The Premier League winner clearly knows just how much of a game West Ham gave him and his Manchester City teammates.
The Hammers are a proper team now and as long as David Moyes is backed sufficiently in the summer transfer window, we could be on the verge of something very special.
Grealish commenting about Bowen causing Man City problems at the England training camp yesterday proves just how much the West Ham star is rated by his peers.
The 25-year-old will undoubtedly continue to get better and better and hopefully he lights it up with the England national team over the next week or so.
