England truth exposes ridiculous nature of Trent Alexander-Arnold criticism after Germany clash omission

Posted by

The notion that Trent Alexander-Arnold would in any way harm England defensively may invite scoffs from much of Liverpool’s fanbase.

One might be inclined to argue Reds fans would be correct in feeling as such given the recent struggles of Gareth Southgate’s men.

The national side has conceded seven goals in their last five games – in the same amount of time, the Three Lions have only manage to keep one clean sheet, coming in a goalless draw with Italy back in June, as may be observed on BBC Sport.

It has to be said that our No.66 has been found wanting in key moments this season, though it’s difficult to see how exactly the Scouser would make Southgate’s backline any worse.

Further to the point, it begs the question as to why the former Middlesbrough boss wasn’t utilising one of (if not the) the globe’s top fullbacks in recent years when playing to a phenomenally high standard.

It’s sad to say – beneficial as it is for Jurgen Klopp’s men – but it seems Alexander-Arnold won’t get his chance to shine on the international stage until a new England boss is selected.

  1. Listen we’ve gotta start being honest as a fan base, Trent has always been limited defensively and athletically, and this season he’s added to that with nonchalant disinterest when it comes to defending. England have two right backs who are supreme defenders and athletic freaks while also quite good going forward (especially James). I’m not Southgates biggest fan but I think I’d do the same if I were him. If Trent wants his legacy to match his talent, for club and country, he needs to start taking his defending seriously, because it’s been unacceptable at times
