As one of the greatest passers of the ball in football history, it’s unsurprising that David Beckham would find himself gravitating toward Trent Alexander-Arnold for a chat about free-kicks.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid ace shared details of his time working under Alex Ferguson and how the famous coach improved the quality of his efforts in dead-ball situations.
To end all that with the acknowledgement that the No.66 ‘can cross a ball’ then feels a huge compliment for a player massively underused, in our eyes, by Gareth Southgate (not to mention, perhaps, a pointed message to the Three Lions’ head coach).
