One of the most interesting decisions that England manager Gareth Southgate has to make ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 this summer is whether or not to include Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold in his squad for the tournament. Eyebrows were raised when the player was left out of the last squad before Southgate names his Euro 2020 squad.
England manager Southgate explained the reason behind the decision to drop Trent. According to him, the Liverpool right-back was dropped due to his poor form at club level. The England boss picked the likes of Reece James of Chelsea, Kyle Walker of Manchester City and Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippierahead of him as far as the right side of defence is concerned.
Trent has been able to respond to the England snub with impressive performances for Liverpool since club football resumed at the end of the March international break thus leading to the question of his inclusion in the England squad for Euro 2020. Whether or not Southgate will name him in his squad for the tournament.
The Liverpool player has an attacking return of one goal plus one assist in his last two games in the Premier League and he has been one of the best Liverpool players during the course of those two games.
He provided an assist for Diogo Jota of Portugal for the first goal of the 3-0 away win over Arsenal after the international break before netting the winner in the 2-1 win at home to fellow European football chasers Aston Villa in the last Liverpool game in the Premier League while Southgate was in attendance. The Reds had to come from a goal down to win the game.
