Rooney said via the Liverpool Echo: “I’m really intrigued to see what Gareth Southgate does with Trent Alexander-Arnold. Personally, I would start him.”

There are many uncertainties around Alexander-Arnold when it comes to the England lineup, and with Kieran Trippier or the Liverpool star expected to play right back because Reece James will not be available for the World Cup and Kyle Walker is still recovering from an injury.

When it comes to how he loves to set up his England team, Gareth Southgate has proven to be a more pragmatic coach, and it could work against Alexander-Arnold as Trippier is a superior defender.
