Trent Alexander-Arnold will never forget England’s 3-0 win against the United States at Wembley Stadium.
The 20-year-old, whose rise at Liverpool has been extraordinary, scored his first ever senior international goal.
He was later named man of the match for his performances. It was certainly a night to remember for the lad.
Alexander-Arnold took to Twitter after the match to celebrate his achievement.
“Childhood dream: Score at Wembley for England ✅❤️,” he wrote.
The right-back’s stats show just how impressive he was.
Gary Neville was impressed
It was Gary Neville, on co-commentary duty for Sky Sports, who gave Alexander-Arnold the man of the match award.
Neville said that it was between Alexander-Arnold and Callum Wilson, who also scored, for the prize.
But the Liverpool man got the award and it’s fair to say that Neville is a big, big fan of his.
He said during the match: “He’s still young, he’s got a big career in front of him. He’ll grow, mature, get better and better in all areas of the game.
“I’ve been impressed with him since his very first Premier League game at Old Trafford.
“We were impressed with him right away. Thrown in at the deep end and did really well.”
Neville’s spot on.
Alexander-Arnold made his senior debut for Liverpool in 2016 and just two years later, he was lining up against Cristiano Ronaldo in a Champions League final.
Liverpool have well and truly thrown him in at the deep end, and he’s quickly learned to swim.
Alexander-Arnold showed that England are well sorted at the right-back position.
He’s behind Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier in the pecking order but Gareth Southgate knows he has his right-back of the future in the Liverpool defender.
And if he keeps impressing, he’s bound to move up the order sooner rather than later.
