England and Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has been ruled out of Euro 2020 after sustaining a thigh injury in their international friendly game against Austria. The Liverpool right-back picked up the injury in the second half of the game.
Trent Alexander-Arnold Dropped From England Travelling Team
The head coach of England, Gareth Southgate, said he was going to watch the player and see the player’s development, but after examining him, the manager has decided to drop the player. The 22-year-old is expected to be sidelined for around six weeks before returning, upon which he will still have to rehabilitate.
England head coach Gareth Southgate has not decided who he will use to replace the player, but he is aspected to make that known after their Sunday’s final warm-up game with Romania. It is a big blow for both England and the player as it is his biggest outing with England national team.
Alexander-Arnold hopefully will be fit before the start of pre-season and the start of next season, which will start in August. The likes of Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker and Reece James are still available as a right-back for the England team.
