Curtis Jones, Anthony Gordon and Trent Alexander-Arnold all did the same thing but received differing levels of media coverage.
The key similarity between all three men is of course that they are Scouse and that none of them sang the national anthem during England duty this week.
When our No.66 didn’t sing along, he received lots of negative press and messages on social media but the same treatment hasn’t been afforded to the other two players.
That will mainly fall down to the fact that this was for the Under 21s but it still shows the hypocrisy within the media and by supporters of the Three Lions.
It’s hard to ignore the different ethnicity of our right-back on this matter and the track record of the media to portray BAME individuals in a derogatory way, despite white players doing exactly the same thing and in the same week.
It’s great that the three Scousers were united on this cause, although they are by no means the first to ever not sing the anthem on live TV.
