With a fantastic 7-0 win against Montenegro, England confirmed their qualification for Euro 2020.
It meant that they had secured their place at next year’s tournament with one game to spare, which would be against Kosovo. With the Balkan nation having lost 2-1 to the Czech Republic, it meant that there was nothing riding on the clash other than England potentially securing top spot. Gareth Southgate still put out a strong side, though, with the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling starting.

The Three Lions prevailed 4-0 in Pristina in a match that had historical importance for the hosts. For England, it was not a great performance despite their eventual comfortable victory. Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold was particularly poor, losing the ball a team-high 14 times.
The national team’s supporters were far from happy with his performance, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
TAA is really poor at defending

People telling me TAA is this amazing player. All I see is a player who puts in a couple of decent crosses from time to time. He’s a poor defender and has been awful tonight! I’d take Trippier or AWB over him all day long.

Look ok going forward but defensively we look shocking especially TAA very poor positionally. #ENGKOS

Yeah we won 4-0 but that was awful!! Some players well out of there depth! If TAA wants to turn up and play like that get him dropped! #England

TAA’s defending has been awful, the fact its only been against Montenegro and Kosovo is worrying

Trent Alexander-Arnold is massively overrated, defensive ability is so poor

Alexander Arnold appears to be playing like a pub footballer #KOSENG
