Trent issues two word statement after injury


Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold picked up a thigh injury in England's friendly match against Austria on Wednesday

The Liverpool star has said he is "absolutely gutted" after the injury ruled him out of the Euros tournament.

Alexander-Arnold limped off during England 's 1-0 win over Austria on Wednesday and manager Gareth Southgate admitted at the time that the injury could be "devastating" for the 22-year-old right-back.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live immediately after the game, Southgate said: "It's not a good situation that he's had to walk off in some discomfort.

"We'll know more details in the next 24 to 48 hours. It looks like a thigh injury - in terms of the full extent, we don't know yet.

"It's devastating, he's worked hard to earn a spot here. I just hope it's not too serious."

A subsequent scan revealed that Alexander-Arnold will be out of action for up to six weeks, with an FA spokesman saying: "Trent Alexander-Arnold has been ruled out of EURO 2020.

"The Liverpool player sustained a thigh injury in the closing stages of Wednesday’s 1-0 win against Austria in Middlesbrough.

"A scan on Thursday confirmed he will be unable to play in the forthcoming tournament, so has withdrawn from the England squad to return to his club for rehabilitation."
