Trent Alexander-Arnold says he is “absolutely gutted” to miss England’s Euro 2020 campaign after suffering a thigh injury against Austria on Wednesday.
The Liverpool full-back was the centre of heated speculation ahead of Gareth Southgate’s decision to cut his preliminary squad to a selection of 26 this week.
Alexander-Arnold was picked, though, along with three other recognised right-backs in Kyle Walker, Reece James and Kieran Trippier.
However, the 22-year-old will play no part in the competition having gone off injured late on in the 1-0 friendly win over Austria after clearing the ball.
Alexander-Arnold, who faces around six weeks on the sidelines, posted an image on his Twitter account on Friday with the caption: “Absolutely gutted.”
Southgate will not confirm a replacement until after Sunday’s friendly against Romania.
