Trent Alexander-Arnold hands England major injury scare ahead of the Euros as right back is forced off with a muscle injury in the dying moments of their 1-0 friendly win over Austria
England have been dealt an injury scare ahead of the Euros this summer after Trent Alexander-Arnold hobbled off with a muscular injury in the latter stages of the warm up game against Austria.
