The former Tottenham Hotspur man had a decent game last night.
Former Tottenham Hotspur star Kieran Trippier helped England to a 4-0 win over Bulgaria last night.
The right-back, who quit Spurs to join Atletico Madrid in July, did his bit at Wembley as Gareth Southgate's side smashed the opposition, with a hat-trick from Harry Kane doing much of the damage.
Trippier, who spent four years at Tottenham, didn't have much to do defensively, but he looked a threat from an attacking perspective and delivered a number of brilliant crosses.
The former Burnley defender looks to have been given a new lease of life in the Spanish capital, having helped Diego Simeone's side reach top of La Liga, resulting in his recall from the Three Lions.
Here's how England fans reacted to his display last night.
Trippier is a much better player since he left spurs— ads (@ads65326323) September 7, 2019
Trippier is top!— ETMM05 (@etmm05) September 8, 2019
Rose, Rashford and Trippier was decent imo— SadHeart (@WazzzaWarrior) September 8, 2019
Not sure why, but I do miss trippier... really think he could of got back to how he was this season— J007 (@MauricioMagics) September 7, 2019
Don't call him up then. Simple ffs. Trippier has been doing very well with @Atleti— Colin Kyaw (@tharlay9) September 7, 2019
Trippier impressed me today defensively. RB is sorted - Tripper, Walker, TAA, AWB, J.Gomez. LB is a problem position w/ only Rose, Chilwell & Bertrand. Sooner J.Gomez gets back into Liverpool's CB partnership the better. Gomez, Slabhead & Mings to compete for 2 CB places.— Aidan (@sonof_wenger) September 7, 2019
Sineone got Trippier working very well.— Kurt Murrell (@murrall_90) September 7, 2019
Absolutely brilliant - unfortunately massive Poch mistake letting Trippier go though...— Jake Holyoak (@jakeyholyoak) September 7, 2019
Letting Trippier leave was a huge risk by Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, considering no replacement was signed.
The Argentine has since promoted Kyle Walker-Peters but there's question marks over whether the academy prospect is good enough for the North Londoners' first team, while Serge Aurier looks finished after Pochettino refused to play him in Walker-Peters's absence against Arsenal last week.
So much hinges on whether Walker-Peters does the business this season. If he fails, questions will be asked of Pochettino for either selling Trippier or not signing anybody to replace him.
