Liverpool and England defender, Trent Alexander-Arnold has been ruled out of Euro 2020 after sustaining a thigh injury.
Alexander-Arnold, 22, got injured while on an assignment for the Three Lions. The friendly match which was played in preparation for the Euro 2020 was between England and Austria.
After a close examination of the injury was carried out, the scan revealed that the right-full back has suffered a quad tear.
Considering the nature of the injury, he won’t be featured in any match at the Euros. In this case, he will be out of football action for at least six weeks and will return to his club for rehabilitation.
On his replacement, Manager Gareth Southgate will be silent about the situation until after Sunday’s final warm-up game with Romania.
On international assignments, the talented defender it is on record that he has missed the previous seven internationals, which has also led to the decision of his inclusion as one of four right-backs when Southgate named his squad last week.
The Euro 2020 for England will start with the Three Lions facing 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia at Wembley on Sunday, 13 June.
