Trent Alexander-Arnold defiantly tweets ‘Always believe in yourself. Silence the doubters’ after being named among four right backs in England squad… while Harry Maguire speaks of ‘huge honour’ to be selected after attending 2016 Euro as a fan
Trent Alexander-Arnold sent out a defiant message after being named in England’s 26-man squad for this summer’s European Championship.
The Liverpool defender had been expected to miss out amid competition from Kieran Trippier, Reece James and Kyle Walker.
But the 22-year-old was selected on Tuesday after a late change of heart by England boss Gareth Southgate.
And Alexander-Arnold tweeted: ‘Always believe in yourself. Silence the doubters.’
Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, Ben Godfrey, James Ward-Prowse, Jesse Lingard and Ollie Watkins have been left out of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for the European Championship, the Football Association has announced.
Raheem Sterling posted an image of himself wearing an England shirt on Twitter – drawing attention to the badge – with the caption: ‘Can’t wait to get going.’
Harry Maguire tweeted an image of himself in the stands alongside one of the squad list, with the caption: ‘Last Euros as a fan. This Euros as a player. Huge honour – can’t wait to get started.’
Marcus Rashford tweeted an image of his younger self wearing an England kit, with the caption: ‘My pride at pulling on the shirt is limitless.’
