As we headed towards the Euro Cup 2020, the 22-year-old English right-back Trent Alexander Arnold took an early leave because of an injury during the warm-up game against Austria. He was ruled out for six weeks which would have been the career-changing weeks for the young lad. This infamous right back was one of the best right-backs England squad had during the world cup and he was named in Gareth Southgate’s team for Euros. Alexander-Arnold has been in a good form with Liverpool’s squad, but he had to back out of the euro squad after his hurtful injury. It is pretty obvious that having him in the England’s powerful squad would’ve given them a better chance in the finals against Italy, where they faced a heart-wrenching defeat.
Recently, the world-class Liverpool star confirmed that he is fit to play and will be back on the turf! He mentioned that he feels no pain now and he might be included in the Liverpool’s squad against their pre-season match scheduled against Wacker Innsbruck and VfB Stuttgart. It depends on the Liverpool’s medical staff whether to announce him as good to play or that he needs more time before the pre-season. At the team hotel in an interview, Alexander Arnold said that he was ready to train at a 100% potential but there were certain things that needed to be done which was not in his hands. It was important to finish off the last stage of rehab and make sure he was good enough to join back the squad. The number 66 was seen on the pitch kicking the ball with the team. It is a good sign of him recovering well and his fans getting to see him playing the 90-minute game soon. Along with Alexander-Arnold, we will also see the defensive wall of Liverpool- Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip return back on the grounds being fully fit to play after dealing with their injuries! Liverpool will kick off their Premier League season on 14th August against the newly promoted Norwich. It is safe to say that by that time, these players are going to be in their full potential and will be giving their best to the Liverpool team.
