Alexander-Arnold’s injury update, England beat Austria, Scotland let Holland draw
Good morning European fans
England defeated the Austrian team 1-0, kicking off their Euro 2020 journey.
Bukayo Saka scored the only goal of the game as the Three Lions defeated David Alaba and Co at Riverside.
But the result came at a price, because Trent Alexander-Arnold was injured near the final whistle.
A few minutes before the start of the game, he was injured, and while clearing the ball without an opponent nearby, his hamstring appeared to be injured.
Reflecting on the frustration, Gareth Southgate said: “We want to see. It’s hard to see him leave like him.
“We will study it in the next 24 hours. I think it’s the thigh, but the medical team will look at it.
“We just need to see, seeing him leave like him is not a good sign.
“We will learn more in the next 24-48 hours and start from there. We don’t know the whole picture.”
At the same time, Scotland drew with the Netherlands 2-2 and lost the last goal.
The ten-man Welsh team was defeated 3-0 by the world champion France.
Finally, it is reported that some Belgian players have refused the opportunity to receive Covid-19 vaccination before the 2020 European Cup.
Belgian media HLN claimed that some of Roberto Martinez’s players refused to accept Pfizer’s jab opportunity because they feared that it would ruin their chance.
The government has given the green light to the Red Devils (the number one international team in football), allowing them to be vaccinated.
However, some players worry about potential side effects—tiredness, headaches, muscle and joint pain, chills, and fever—affecting more than one in ten people.
