Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is not a certainty for the England national team ahead of the upcoming European Championship this summer according to the publication from The Athletic. It was reported that the Reds right-back could still miss Euro 2020 despite UEFA changing the number of players in each team from 23 to 26.

England manager Gareth Southgate courted controversy ahead of the March international break when he left out the aforementioned Trent from his squad for the start of the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The Liverpool man was absent from the England squad for the games against San Marino,Albania and Poland at the start of the qualifiers for Qatar 2022.

Trent has arguably been the best right-back in the league since he was snubbed by Southgate in March but David Ornstein of The Athletic thinks that might not be enough for him to make the England squad for Euro 2020.

Liverpool defender Trent was not selected by Southgate for the last squad in favour of other options like Manchester City defender Kyle Walker, Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier and Chelsea player Reece James.

The right-back trio of Walker, Trippier and James were selected ahead of Trent for the three England games in March and they are still ahead of him in the race for Euro 2020as per the report mentioned above. To this effect, Trent might be part of the squad for Euro 2020 if Southgate decides to take four good right-backs to the tournament.

Several football stakeholders have spoken about Trent and his England situation as they stressed the need for him to be part of the squad to the European Championship later this year. The Liverpool defender showed his quality once again at the weekend when he produced an assist for the winning goal scored by goalkeeper Alisson Becker in the 2-1 away win over relegated West Brom.
