Trent Alexander-Arnold had to be substituted after picking up an injury in England's Euro 2020 warm-up win over Austria.

The Liverpool right-back could be heard letting out a huge scream when clearing the ball during the closes stages of the match.

Alexander-Arnold gestured towards the England bench asking to be taken off after sustaining the injury.

As he left the pitch, the 22-year-old had to aided by a member of the Three Lions' medical staff.

The extent of his injury is not yet known, but Gareth Southgate must now be fretting over the availability of one of his star players.

Aston Villa star Jack Grealish offered an update on his team-mate's situation on ITV after the match, saying: "I am not sure what has happened and it did not look good as he made his way off the pitch.

"You cannot knock Austria, top players in the Bundesliga and we have seven or eight top, top players to come back. A good test and another win under our belts."

Southgate, meanwhile, relayed that his medical team believe it is a thigh injury and that they will know more in the next 24/48 hours.

Alexander-Arnold was a surprise inclusion in the 26-man squad after being left out of March's World Cup qualifiers.

He is one of four right-backs in Southgate' roster, alongside Kyle Walker, Reece James and Kieran Trippier.

The Reds ace wasn't the only player to suffer an injury scare during England's 1-0 win at the Riverside.

Grealish could be seen icing his shin after being substituted with 20 minutes to play.

But in his interview with ITV, the Villa ace assured fans it was nothing to worry about: “It’s a different type of injury. It’s stress on my shin. I’m not concerned.”

"I’m aware of it a little bit so I still need to keep on top of it and heal it when I play in these games. That’s why I had ice on it.”
