Trent Alexander-Arnold has enjoyed a pretty sensational season.
He made his European debut, scored his first professional goal, played in a Champions League Final and is set for minutes at the World Cup, following an impressive international debut v Costa Rica last week.
As a result, he’s considerably bigger name than he was 12 months ago – and fans are getting his name on the back of their shirts!
Unfortunately, ‘Alexander-Arnold’ is quite expensive, especially when printers are charging per letter!
England and Liverpool fan Ben Kelly found this out, but after posting the message online, our right-back came to his rescue.
Wanted to buy an England shirt with Alexander-Arnold on the back but it’s £1 per letter for printing ☹️
Might have to be just ‘Trent’ instead.

Top stuff, young man!
At just 19, Trent has the potential to develop into one of the best fullbacks on the planet.
England’s wing-back formation actually suits him perfectly, because he’s quick and delivers a wicked cross, but is less confident defensively.
With Kyle Walker behind him at right centre-back, he has support at the back, though we think Gareth Southgate will select Kieran Trippier as his first-choice.
