Jack Grealish immediately revealed the hilarious story upon his arrival to train with the England team to staff after he was initially supposedly denied entry.
Aston Villa captain Grealish was finally called up to Gareth Southgate’s senior England team on Monday for the upcoming Nations League qualifiers, following the withdrawals of Marcus Rashford and Harry Winks.
However, on entering the St George's Park training ground, the 24-year-old admits it wasn't the entrance he expected after having some hassle on the way in.
Stepping out of his cab dressed in full Villa training gear, Grealish chuckles as he recounts security not recognising him.
Getting out of his cab, Grealish laughed: "Hello, yeah, I'm finally here. At the front then they were like, 'Who? Who?' for about like five minutes.
"They went are you with the under-21s? I said, 'Nah, I don't think so!?'"
Despite many feeling he has earned his call up after regularly impressing for Villa, Danny Mills doesn’t feel Grealish will have a big role to play for England in the coming years.
“He [Grealish] might get a little cameo, but I don’t think he’ll play a huge part,” Mills told talkSPORT.
“People keep saying, ‘why is he not in the squad?’ Well, he’s not good enough, because if he was good enough, Gareth would have picked him. It’s as simple as that.
“He might get a cameo, but in what position? It might have to be in the wide forward positions.

“I don’t think Gareth and the England coaching staff see him as disciplined enough on the pitch to do a job.
“We’re not talking about Iceland and Denmark, you’re looking when you get to quarter-finals, semi-finals when you’re playing against Germany, Spain and France, can you hold that role?
“Like Mason Mount, we’ve seen him do it for Chelsea, he can stay in that pocket and sit and do that job very, very well.”
