Payet was the best player on the pitch at Stade de France in Saint-Denis on Friday evening, attempting five dribbles and creating eight chances.

The Frenchman scored nine goals and created 116 chances in 30 Premier League appearances for West Ham during the 2015-16 season.

Grealish, 20, himself is a talented player, and hopefully he will have learned something from Payet’s performance for France against Romania on Friday evening.
