Jack Grealish’s dad vows to keep wearing his ‘lucky’ Union Jack waistcoat to take England to World Cup glory

JACK Grealish’s dad has vowed to continue wearing his ‘lucky’ Union Flag waistcoat to take England to World Cup glory.

Madcap Kevin left his famous son squirming by cheering on the Three Lions in Qatar wearing a garish outfit in the stands.

But the proud father is unmoved by Jack’s pleas to leave behind the inspirational attire – and will “100%” be donning the patriotic kit tomorrow.

The mortified Manchester City £100m star laughed: “What’s he doing with that? I said ‘what are you wearing there?’.

“He had a little bow-tie as well but my mum told him to take it off – I don’t know where he’s got it from, it looks like something from the market, doesn’t it?”

But Kevin’s £100 waistcoat – specially made by an independent retailer near his Solihull home – will be back on display in the knock-out clash between England and Senegal.

The Union Flag themed bow tie was an extra £20 and Kevin will keep it on after attending all of England’s three Group B games in which Jack and his team-mates remained unbeaten.

Along with his parents, the midfielder’s sister Hollie, who has cerebral palsy, has travelled out to lend her support.

Jack, 27, performed a special celebration for an 11-year-old fan called Finlay after scoring his first-ever World Cup goal against Iran in England’s first game of the tournament.

Dan McHale, the assistant manager at Kevin’s tailor Bentley’s, told of their special commission last night.

He said: “Kevin came in a few days before he flew out to Qatar and picked it up. He was absolutely delighted with it. I think it’s definitely something the cameras can pick up on.”

Kevin’s natty look is in stark contrast to Jack’s fashion sense, which landed him a seven-figure tie-up with Gucci earlier this year.

England fan John Gadd said last night: “I’ll be wearing my lucky underpants watching England and everyone needs to do their bit – including Kevin Grealish. Good on him and let’s hope it takes us to World Cup glory.”
