Trent Alexander-Arnold has been excluded from the 2020 European Cup and will leave the training camp in England on Thursday night.
A medical evaluation earlier in the day revealed that the 22-year-old Liverpool defender suffered a second-degree torn limb in the 1-0 friendly victory over Austria in England.
The scan confirmed the most worrying thing for the frustrated defender, who will now withdraw from the England game. He is facing a recovery period of four to six weeks.
In other injury news in England, former Three Lions forward Gabriel Abonraho criticized Jordan Henderson for failing to withdraw from the 2020 European Cup due to the current injury situation.
He told talkSPORT: “He should be honest with the manager now and say:’You know what, I am struggling here. I am the leader and captain myself, and I will do the right thing for the team’.
“Introduce any midfielder you have to bring in because injuries are getting worse now. I think [Henderson] Is selfish. “
Elsewhere, Sven Goran Eriksson believes that Jesse Lingard should be included in the 26-man England team in the upcoming European Championship.
Eriksen was shocked by Lingard’s omission. The former England coach questioned the decision of the current coach Southgate.
He told talkSPORT: “It is surprising that Lingard is not present because even with his speed and one-on-one ability put him on the bench, he is also a smart football player.
“He had a great season with West Ham United. I didn’t see him play every game, but I saw him play very well.”
