Euro 2020: Alexander-Arnold omitted from the England national team?


defender Liverpool Trent Alexander-Arnold reportedly dropped from England National Team for Euro 2020. Manager Gareth Southgate prefer other names for the right-back position.

ESPN reported on Monday (31/5/2021), an internal source reported that the position of Reece James (Chelsea) and Kyle Walker (Manchester City) would not be evicted if they were not injured.

One remaining slot will belong to Kieran Trippier, who has just led Atletico Madrid to the Spanish League champions this season. This is definitely bad news for Alexander-Arnold, who last played for England in October.

Alexander-Arnold not called England National Team in the last three 2022 World Cup Qualifying matches, at that time Southgate said the 22-year-old defender was not in his best form. Incidentally, Liverpool is also in a negative trend in the Premier League.

But this was answered by Alexander-Arnold with 1 goal and 4 assists in the last 9 matches Liverpool in the Premier League, where 7 wins and 2 draws were achieved. Liverpool finally finished in the top three and qualified for the Champions League next season.

Even so, it doesn’t seem convincing enough Southgate to take him to Euro 2020. The new England will announce the official squad containing 26 players today, Tuesday (1/6). The deadline for registration is 11 pm local time, or Wednesday (2/6) at 5.00 pm.

Trent Alexander-Arnold already playing in the first team Liverpool since the 2016/17 season, and already got a call England National Team since 2018. But it seems that he is not Southgate’s first choice, considering that he has only collected 12 caps in three years.

On Euro 2020, England are in Group D with Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland.
