Liverpool youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold wants U17 World Cup adventure to continue

Anfield Pitch

The Liverpool prospect has been reflecting on a big few weeks of international football.

Young Liverpool midfielder-cum-right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been speaking to the FA’s official website about his participation at the U17 World Cup in Chile this month.

The 17-year-old made his first appearance of the tournament in the recent 1-0 defeat to Brazil but he is hoping for more action before he ultimately heads back to Liverpool.

England drew 1-1 with Guinea in their opening match of the competition and next up is a game against South Korea which has now become a must-win if England’s young lions want to make it to the next round.

Speaking about his outing against Brazil, Alexander-Arnold told thefa.com, “I don’t want to go home with that as my only appearance at the World Cup.

“We have played well in both matches, stuck to our game plan and carried it out well but the results have been harsh on us.”

The Liverpool youngster has a long way to go before he can break into the Liverpool first-team having not yet even featured for the under-21s, but he has already captained the Reds at under-16 and under-18 level, suggesting he has a very bright future in the game.

While predominantly a central midfielder he played at right-back for Liverpool’s first-team during a pre-season friendly against Swindon Town and did not look out of place so watch this space…
