Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss the upcoming European Championship after the Liverpool right back withdrew from the England squad with a thigh injury, the national team announced on Thursday.

He sustained the injury during the closing stages of England’s 1-0 friendly win over Austria on Wednesday and British media reported he faces a recovery period of four to six weeks.

“A scan on Thursday confirmed the 22-year-old will be unable to play in the forthcoming tournament so he’s withdrawn from the England squad to return to his club for rehabilitation,” England said in a statement.

England manager Gareth Southgate “will not confirm a replacement until after Sunday’s return to the Riverside Stadium for the warm-up fixture against Romania”.
