Connor is undergoing chemotherapy and revealed the message from Grealish lifted his spirits.

He told MailOnline: “I was so excited. It made me feel better.

“He is really skilful player and a nice man.

“I think if he does play against Denmark they will start him in the second half because they are saving him for the final And I think it will be 3-3 after extra time and we will win on pens. I don’t think Italy are the best at pens.”
