LIVERPOOL star Trent Alexander-Arnold has given a positive update on his injury and says he is ‘getting better every day’.
The Premier League and Champions League-winning right-back, 22, was part of Gareth Southgate’s original England squad for Euro 2020.
But Alexander-Arnold suffered injury heartbreak when a thigh problem sustained in the warm-up win over Austria ruled him out of the tournament.
Scans revealed the defender would be out for at least six weeks,
And Alexander-Arnold was replaced in the 26-man squad by Brighton centre-half Ben White.
The Anfield favourite admitted he was ‘absolutely gutted’ to miss Euro 2020.
But Alexander-Arnold has now revealed he is making good progress ahead of Liverpool’s pre-season.
The ace is hopeful of playing the season opener against Norwich on August 14.
And Alexander-Arnold is also delighted to see England reach the Euro semis after Saturday’s 4-0 win against Ukraine.
Showing off his new hair style, Alexander-Arnold told BBC Sport from Marbella, Spain: “Every day is a new step, every day is getting better and getting fitter.
“Going into pre-season will be good. Having a few weeks’ rest, hitting the season and pushing on from there.
“It’s disappointing for me personally not to be there but it still puts a smile on my face seeing the lads doing well, going far and seeing the nation get behind them.
“The support everywhere has been amazing. To see that and know all the lads, having been there for a few weeks, I know they’re going to do them proud.”
