Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has had to withdraw from the England squad for this summer’s European Championship.
The 22-year-old had just been confirmed as part of Gareth Southgate’s squad earlier this week. He then started England’s friendly win over Austria on Wednesday night. However, he limped off with an injury late in the game.
Today, it has been confirmed that injury is enough to keep the right-back out of action for the next four to six weeks.
The Liverpool full-back sustained a thigh problem in the closing stages of Wednesday night’s friendly against Austria.
Alexander-Arnold subsequently underwent a scan on Thursday that confirmed the injury will prevent him from participating in the European Championship, which begins next week.
The 22-year-old will immediately start a rehabilitation programme with a view to returning in pre-season as the Reds prepare for 2021-22.

We wish Trent a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him fully fit for Liverpool when the new season begins in August. Jordan Henderson will still be playing a part in the Euros for England.
