Trent Alexander-Arnold on England role switch
Trent Alexander-Arnold has been called up for the November break and will likely be deployed in his new role for the Three Lions this week.
The 25-year-old has now been given the chance to play as a midfielder after struggling to compete at right-back, and is expected to start there when England host Malta on Friday at Wembley in their penultimate Euro 2024 qualifier.
On his new role for England, Trent had this to say in a recent interview:
“Since we spoke in the summer, me and the manager, about a midfield opportunity and to see if we could make it work, there has been a newfound excitement for me,” Alexander-Arnold said.
“It is a huge opportunity and it is one I am grateful to have, but also making sure I take it.
“It still early days, I haven’t had much experience in there so still learning on the job and about picking it up as much as I can when I am in there.
“It is exciting and I enjoy learning, I enjoy having that kind of understanding of the game, trying to understand different roles and positions and admire what people are doing in there.”
