England fans marvel at Trent Alexander-Arnold’s ‘UNREAL’ goal in the Three Lions’ 3-0 win over Bosnia

Trent Alexander-Arnold of England celebrates scoring his team's second goal during the international friendly match between England and Bosnia & Herzegovina at St James' Park on June 03, 2024 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

The night was set for Trent Alexander-Arnold to impress new Liverpool boss Arne Slot. He made England manager Gareth Southgate think.

Southgate plans to use Alexander-Arnold in midfield. He began against Bosnia and Herzegovina wearing the number eight after being named one in the provisional Euros squad.

The discussion continues. Jurgen Klopp experimented with Alexander-Arnold’s role in his final 18 months at Liverpool, but has mostly used him as a full-back. Slot must decide whether to follow suit.

Alexander-Arnold scored England’s second in a 3-0 triumph. The trutҺ is different from that, which would suggest a permanent midfield shift to Slot.

The goal that settled the game was scored after Alexander-Arnold was pulled back into defense. This did not diminish his middle work, which was solid but unremarkable, a description that fit the game as a whole.

Alexander-Arnold delivered a beautifully executed volley from the right to score across the goal and into the corner. His contribution was only possible from a full-back base.

Southgate has historically avoided playing Liverpool’s right-back. While dominating for the Reds, he had few international opportunities due to competition from Kyle Walker, Reece James, and Kieran Trippier.

Southgate may be considering if Alexander-Arnold should be back in his original role heading into the competition, especially as Adam Wharton was a standout midfielder when he came on. Goal shows Slot a way out of the dilemma.

It emphasizes that Alexander-Arnold’s perspective has never been the issue. The main thing is how to get him where he can affect games most.

That was in the innovative hybrid role late in 2022/23. It seemed to revive Alexander-Arnold, commencing a season that had been stalled personally and collectively.

In the previous campaign, Alexander-Arnold’s talents may not have been fully utilized. Injuries hampered his progress, but he did show some ‘quarter-back’ brilliance, but his figures were far from his days of breаking the defender assist record.

Slot’s sole focus is harnessing Alexander-Arnold’s immense skill. He can be a generational talent, and while his best position is debated, the new Liverpool manager can play him wherever if he gives him a chance.
