Trent Alexander-Arnold England squad snub explained as Gareth Southgate challenges Liverpool FC star

[ad_1]

Alexander-Arnold has been one of Liverpool’s star players during a trophy-laden spell at Anfield, winning the Champions League in 2019 before cantering to Premier League title glory last season.

Walker and Trippier have both earned recalls of late having been dropped over the past couple of years, and Southgate has backed Alexander-Arnold to respond like they did and rediscover his best form before the Euros.

“There’s some areas of the pitch where we’ve got incredible competition for places and Trent’s very unfortunate,” the England manager said.

“I don’t think he’s played at the level that he found in the last couple of years, but I think he’s getting very close to that now. I think in the last few weeks he’s definitely taken steps in the right direction.

“It’s simply that we think Reece James, Kieran Trippier have had exceptional seasons really with their clubs.

“Kyle Walker is in great form with Manchester City, so we’ve got other players in the league who are also playing well in that position.

“(Matty) Cash at Aston Villa, (Luke) Ayling at Leeds, so it really is a position (of strength). We’ve got two very good right-backs in the under-21s. It’s a remarkable position of strength.

“What I said to Trent earlier today, I’ve made that same call to Kyle and to Kieran in the past and their response was a good one.
