Gary Lineker believes Trent Alexander-Arnold has been ‘hung out to dry’ by Gareth Southgate ahead of tonight’s clash with Slovenia at Euro 2024. 

England have qualified for the next stage but will be looking to top the group with a win.

The Three Lions have come under fierce criticism following two lacklustre performances against Serbia and Denmark respectively with Alexander-Arnold operating in a central midfield role.

Chelsea player Conor Gallagher is expected to replace the Liverpool star for tonight’s game and Lineker feels he has been hard done by.

Speaking on  BBC’s Euros Extra show on Monday the former England striker said: ‘I do feel a bit for Trent Alexander-Arnold.’

‘I feel like he’s been hung out to dry a little bit. His manager’s said he’s an experiment and now it looks like an experiment that doesn’t work.

‘It’s very hard to play in a new position even when a team’s playing well.’

‘But when a team’s struggling and a team’s disjointed and not together and not getting up the pitch it becomes very difficult.

‘I do feel for him because he’s an unbelievably talented player.’

Southgate recently raised a few eyebrows when he claimed the team have been struggling to replace Kalvin Phillips, a player who had been a regular for Southgate before missing out on this tournament’s squad.
