White replaces injured Alexander-Arnold in England’s Euro 2020 squad

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White will replace Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold in England’s final 26-member squad for the upcoming European Championship, the team said on Monday.

Alexander-Arnold withdrew from the England squad last week after he suffered a thigh injury during the closing stages of their 1-0 friendly win over Austria on June 2.

White, 23, made his England debut against Austria and was also part of the team which defeated Romania 1-0 in Sunday’s final Euro warm-up game.
