Alexander-Arnold would ‘never play a knockout game for England’

Trent Alexander-Arnold has been a consistent performer for many years for Liverpool, but there are still many questions about his supposed ability to play in high-pressure games, despite the caliber of opposition he has faced for the Reds.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Gary Neville continued to praise and criticize our No.66: “Trent Alexander-Arnold is that [a generational talent]. If you look at what is in his position, there is nothing like it in terms of delivery.

“Playing him at right back gives you the chance to get him into the team, you would never play him at right back, I don’t think, in a knockout game for England. But he might, if he starts that tournament off right and you have Walker or White behind him on that channel, they’ll come out comfortably.”

It is strange to call a player a generational talent and then say that he is not capable of playing a knockout match for his country in the same sentence and it shows the mixed opinions that exist about our right back.

Jurgen Klopp has the faith and belief in his player that he will be able to succeed in any match he wants him to play in, but it seems that many pundits and those in charge of his national team disagree.
