England boss Gareth Southgate has admitted that seeing Trent Alexander-Arnold limping off the pitch “was not a good sign”.

Trent Alexander-Arnold could miss Euro 2020 after the England defender suffered a thigh injury in Wednesday’s 1-0 friendly win against Austria.  The 22-year-old looked emotional as he needed assistance to hobble around the Riverside Stadium pitch.

Southgate admitted he was concerned over Alexander-Arnold’s chances of making the tournament as he awaited tests over the next 24 hours. “We’re going to have a look. Clearly it’s not a good sign to see him come off in the way he did,” Southgate said. “We’ll have to assess him. I think it’s a thigh but the medical team are assessing him.

“It’s not a good sign to see him have to walk off as he did. We’ll know more in 24 to 48 hours. We don’t know the full extent. The last thing you want is to see him come off in the way he did.”

Alexander-Arnold, who finished the season in fine form, is one of four right-backs in the England squad after being selected despite reports he would be left out.
