Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold has reacted after a thigh injury ruled him out of the Euros.
The 22-year-old right-back picked up a thigh injury in England's friendly match against Austria on Wednesday.
A subsequent scan revealed that the Liverpool defender 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“A scan on Thursday confirmed he will be unable to play in the forthcoming tournament, so has withdrawn from the England squad to return to his club for rehabilitation.”
Following the news that he will miss the Euros, Alexander-Arnold posted an image of himself leaving the pitch on Wednesday on social media, accompanied by the caption: “Absolutely gutted.”
Southgate is set to name a replacement for Alexander-Arnold after England's final warm-up game against Romania on Sunday.
