Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has suffered a “grade two quad tear” so he will miss out on this summer’s European Championships.
The right-back suffered the injury late into England’s international friendly at the Riverside Stadium against Austria.
The incident was very innocuous as there was no one around him when he pulled up. He could not continue as he needed assistance when walking off.
The Athletic have confirmed that the defender will not be able to make it to the Euros. The report reads:
“Alexander-Arnold has been ruled out of Euro 2020 and will depart England’s camp on Thursday night.
“A medical assessment earlier in the day revealed that the Liverpool defender, 22, had suffered a grade two quad tear during England’s 1-0 friendly win over Austria.
“The scan confirmed the devastated defender’s worst fears and he will now withdraw from England’s squad for the tournament. He faces a recovery period of between four to six weeks.”
