Alexander-Arnold relishing prospect of lining up against Robertson at Euros

Trent Alexander-Arnold is hoping he has the chance to face Liverpool team-mate and fellow full-back Andy Robertson when England meet Scotland in the Euros showdown at Wembley in June.

Alexander-Arnold immediately sent Robertson a congratulatory text after Scotland qualified and the pair are great friends on and off the pitch.

He said: “I was made up for him, he’s thoroughly deserved it. He’s captain of a team which achieved something very special.

“I’d love to be in the squad and in same group as him next summer, hopefully play each other. We’d love to do it. It’s not us that make the decision at the end of the day but it would be an amazing chance.

“We have a platform to give something back and make a positive change to people’s lives.

“There are so many people that rely on food banks, probably more than people think.
