Trent Alexander-Arnold pulls out of England Squad due to back injury

Liverpool defender Alexander-Arnold was in line to start Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has withdrawn from England's squad due to a back injury, the Football Association (FA) has confirmed.

Alexander-Arnold reported for England duty earlier this week but has been sent back to Merseyside after an assessment from the medical staff at St. George's Park.

The 20-year-old has returned to Liverpool to continue treatment on the injury with a view to featuring for the Premier League leaders after the worldwide break.

Around Rolling Fork, Mississippi, townspeople first noticed water rising from swamps near the Mississippi River in late February. Additionally, much of the USA east of the Mississippi River and portions of California and Nevada are at risk for minor flooding.

Boss Gareth Southgate has decided not to name a replacement for Alexander-Arnold, despite Crystal Palace young gun Aaron Wan-Bissaka tearing it up in the Premier League.

Fabian Delph, John Stones, Luke Shaw and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have already pulled out, while Marcus Rashford is reportedly nursing an ankle complaint.

Gareth Southgate's side face the Czech Republic at a sold out Wembley Stadium on Friday evening, before a tricky visit Montenegro on Monday.

Manchester City's Kyle Walker and Tottenham's Kieran Trippier are the other specialist right backs in the squad.
