(Video) Typically inch-perfect Trent pass sets up Saka to score England’s fourth of the night

Posted by

Trent Alexander-Arnold showed why he’s one of the most gifted passers of a football in the world with a sublime assist in England’s emphatic 7-0 win against North Macedonia tonight.

Gareth Southgate’s side were already three to the good at half-time and they needed just two minutes of the second half to further extend their advantage at Old Trafford.

It stemmed from a simply glorious pass from the Liverpool star, who lofted a first-time ball over the top of the visitors’ defence to pick out Bukayo Saka from all of 50 yards, with the Arsenal man taking a couple of touches before unleashing a rocket of a shot past Stole Dimitrievski.

It was the scorer’s second goal of the night, and he quickly went on to complete his hat-trick as England ran riot in Manchester.

The Gunners maestro will understandably get plenty of the headlines tonight and tomorrow, although he’ll readily acknowledge Trent’s typically inch-perfect contribution towards one portion of his treble at Old Trafford.
