Watch: Emerging Liverpool talent runs riot for England
By Danny Wright
Liverpool teenager Trent Alexander-Arnold produced a phenomenal display for the England under-19 side as they romped to a 3-0 victory over Norway.
The emerging talent, who plays at right-back, showed that he is one of the most exciting players in the Liverpool academy as he produced a strong run down the wing to set up Mason Mount to open up the scoring.
It looked as though Alexander-Arnold had ran out of space in the visitors’ box, but despite being crowded out by Norway defenders he still managed to find Mount with a perfectly placed cut-back.
The Under-19s, managed by former West Bromwich Albion assistant manager Keith Downing, went on to secure a comfortable victory at St. Georges Park with goals from Fulham’s Tayo Edun and Albion’s Sam Field.
