He was kicked out of England’s squad before the start of the World Cup qualifying campaign, a decision that cast serious doubts on his place in Southgate’s Euro roster.
Alexander-Arnold, who was unable to walk free when he left the Riverside on Wednesday night, regained his place in the England squad for the tournament earlier this week, but is now devastated.

England coach Gareth Southgate is expected to call in an extra man to take the place of right-back in his 26-man roster.
Jesse Lingard, Ollie Watkins, Aaron Ramsdale, James Ward-Prowse, Ben White and Ben Godfrey failed to make it to Southgate’s Euro 2020 roster this week, but one gets a spot in this month’s tournament.
