Trent Alexander-Arnold helped England defeat USA 3-0 in an international friendly on Thursday night – and some Liverpool fans on Twitter hailed their defender after his performance.
The 20-year-old right-back earned his fifth senior cap for the Lions, as Gareth Southgate’s side ran out comfortable winners at Wembley in a game that celebrated Wayne Rooney’s last ever international match.
Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard opened the scoring after 25 minutes with a stunning effort into the top corner, before Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold also netted just moments later.
He made a trademark burst forward into the final third and struck a brilliant finish across goal to leave the goalkeeper stranded.
Bournemouth centre-forward Callum Wilson marked his debut with a goal in the second-half too and it was a fairly comfortable night for England.
Alexander-Arnold has had a meteoric rise in the past 18 months to become a key Liverpool first teamer and is now getting opportunities to impress for England as well.
The youngster is a serious threat when he joins in with attacks and has all the traits of a modern day full-back, but there are perhaps still defensive weaknesses to his game that can be improved.
A selection of Liverpool fans were impressed by his latest outing on the international stage and feel he played a key role.
Here are some of the Liverpool fan tweets on Alexander-Arnold:
Well played Trent from start to finish. Superstar in the making

If stays grounded and not let success get to head too much, like many of the Reds legends have said, he will be the best in the world. #LFC
