England head coach Gareth Southgate has said that he is worried about the injury suffered by Trent Alexander-Arnold against Austria.

Liverpool right-back Alexander-Arnold started for England in their friendly international game against Austria at Wembley Stadium in London on Wednesday evening.

Bukayo Saka scored the only goal in the matching the 56th minute.

Alexander-Arnold, 22, hurt himself while making a late clearance and limped off the pitch in the 89th minute.

Southgate has said that he is worried about the severity of the injury suffered by the Liverpool right-back.

The England boss told BBC Sport: “It’s not a good situation that he’s had to walk off in some discomfort.

”We’ll know more details in the next 24 to 48 hours. It looks like a thigh injury – in terms of the full extent, we don’t know yet.

“It’s devastating, he’s worked hard to earn a spot here. I just hope it’s not too serious.”

England are rated at 4/1 favourites by Betfair to win the Euro 2020 finals this summer.
