Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire families ‘quit England wag boat’ following urinating incident

Jack Grealish and Harry Maguire’s families allegedly “led an exodus from the Three Lions’ wag boat.”

Both players will play crucial roles for Gareth Southgate as he tries to lead England to a FIFA World Cup title this winter.

After a thrilling 3-0 victory over Senegal on Sunday night—in which Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane, and Bukayo Saka all scored—England will meet France in the quarterfinals.

After becoming “very unhappy” with life at sea, the Daily Mail reports that the Grealish and Maguire families have left England’s wag boat.

Someone on the fifth floor urinated in the atrium earlier in the tournament, causing them to feel alienated, and ultimately lead to the decision.

Fans’ late-night returns to celebrate caused disruption for families, and some had trouble getting in touch with loved ones.

Hotels have been ‘moved into as planned’ by all of the England camp passengers, it has been reported.

Concerns that Qatar is painting parts of its pitches green have arisen after many World Cup players reportedly complained about ‘strange stains’ on their kit after games.

Not exactly out of the ordinary, since Augusta does the same thing every time they host the Masters Tournament for golf.

FIFA has made it clear this is not the case, but players at a World Cup that has been mired with controversy this winter have nevertheless wondered.

Despite difficulties in the Middle East for the families of Grealish and Maguire, England has performed well on the field.

They kicked off their competition with a 6-2 triumph over Iran on day one, including a goal from substitute Jack Grealish.

After Manchester City’s big win, the star player honored a little fan who has cerebral palsy, a disability he and his sister share.

Later, England played to a scoreless draw with the United States before crushing Wales 3-0 with goals from Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford.

Sunday night saw the Three Lions annihilate Senegal, setting up a quarterfinal meeting with France.

Since England has lost its last three major-tournament matches against the 2018 champions, they will be playing against history if they hope to win this one.

It was a scoreless draw in 1992, while England was defeated by France by a 2-1 score in 2004.

England and France played to a 1-1 draw at the 2012 European Championships after Samir Nasri nullified a goal by Joleon Lescott.

Speaking before England’s match with France, Southgate said his team was looking forward to the challenge of playing Didier Deschamps’ side.

“It’s the biggest test that we can face,” he said. “They’re world champions, incredible depth of talent, outstanding individual players, very difficult to play against and to score goals against.

“It’s a fantastic challenge, brilliant game for us to prepare for. The two quarter-finals that are already in place are fantastic, historic football rivalries and great games from the past.

“A brilliant game for us to be involved with and test ourselves against the very best.”

Southgate said Deschamps’ side had other dangerous players despite the presence of Kylian Mbappe, who scored twice in France’s 3-1 triumph over Poland.

“Of course (Mbappe) is a world-class player and has already delivered big moments in this tournament and in previous tournaments,” he said.

“But there’s also, I think (Antoine) Griezmann is now over 70 consecutive games for France and I think he’s also a phenomenal player.

“We know Olivier Giroud so well and they have outstanding young midfield players as well.

“So, everywhere you look when we’re studying France at every age group, they have incredible depth of talent in every position.

“It’s a huge test but one that we’re really looking forward to and it’s a great challenge for our team now.”
