On the international stage, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s fable hasn’t been as utopian as his career has been at club level. For a player as talented as him his current tally of 23 international caps feels lean.

Fellow 25-year-olds Declan Rice and Mason Mount have 48 and 36 respectively, even if the latter has endured a difficult period at club level this season.

But Alexander-Arnold is philosophical about his own situation – there have been extenuating circumstances to factor in such as injury, club versus country tactical differences and the avalanche of talent that England have at right-back, where he’s been competing with Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and Reece James.
