Collymore: Alexander- Arnold Should Be A Regular For England In Qatar

Former England striker, Stan Collymore believes that Trent Alexander-Arnold is one best players in his position in the world and should start for the Three Lions at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Alexander-Arnold was left on the bench during England’s UEFA Nations League 1-0 loss to Italy and he was excluded from the matchday squad that played out a 3-3 draw with Germany.

In Collymore’s caught offside column, he lauded Alexander-Arnold and debunked claims that the 24 year old isn’t good defensively.

“Trent Alexander-Arnold should have got more game time for England,” Collymore said.

“He’s a special footballer. The suggestion that teams would go into games and target Alexander-Arnold is absurd, he’s one the best in the world in his position.

“I would play Alexander-Arnold first game, I think it would be exciting. His ability to switch play and I don’t see the poor defensive ability that others see.

“He gives you so much moving forward, he can put in a cross just inside the opposition half that Walker and Trippier can’t do. Everyone will think Walker will start and I’ll start Trent.”

Alexander-Arnold has scored once in 17 games for England.

He has scored three goals in 18 games appearances across all competitions for Liverpool so far this season.

England are in Group B with Wales, Iran and the United States of America.
