Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold earned calls from fans to get a new position after his incredible training goal with England emerged.

The full-back will start for the Three Lions against Belgium in their Nations League match at Wembley.

With records for consecutive seasons of assists for a defender in the Premier League, the 22-year-old is not afraid of attacking.

And footage has emerged of the Reds full-back showing Gareth Southgate what he can do in the opposition half.

In the clip, the Three Lions are playing a mini-game as players are separated into bibs and non-bibs.

Alexander-Arnold picks up the ball in the penalty box from Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham’s back-flick – but he is put under pressure by Marcus Rashford and West Ham’s Declan Rice.

Appearing to line up for a shot on the right foot, the 22-year-old quickly drags back to turn his back on goal.

It sees Manchester United captain Harry Maguire step forward to defend.

But Alexander-Arnold pulls off a rapid pirouette away from the centre-back before dragging to the left from Rice’s launch.

The only one keeping their head, though, is the Reds defender as he calmly walks away.

It gives the Liverpool defender a clean shot at goal as he strolls past the goalkeeper, leaving his team-mates stunned.

This footage was shared on England’s official YouTube channel, where fans suggested the full-back should be playing higher up the pitch.

“It baffles me how Trent still isn’t a midfielder with that skill on the ball,” one supporter said.

Another commented: “Who knew Trent could dribble like that? Get him on RM.”

While a third sent a direct message to Southgate, writing: “Look at Trent man – we’re hiding that gem at RB.”

And a fourth added: “Trent is a dream going forward.”

With a fifth simply writing: “Trent’s got skills.”

But he could get one less player to compete with as United’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka hinted he could quit England after his latest snub from Southgate.
