Keane: Trent could get ripped apart in midfield



Roy Keane insists Trent Alexander-Arnold would be "found out" in midfield against top teams during the knockout stages of Euro 2024, while Gary Neville agrees that he is not a solution in the position for England in the bigger games.

The Liverpool star is expected to be used by Gareth Southgate in a midfield role, alongside Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham, in England's group-stage opener against Serbia on Sunday.

"England have got some brilliant individuals; four or five players who would walk into any team in this tournament," Keane said on ITV Sport. "But it's about getting the balance right.

"You have players who can go and win you matches but the problem is defending against better teams. I think they will be fine in the group. Trent will be fine [in midfield].

"But against really top teams, I think he will be found out. I think he would be ripped to shreds if he played against one of the better teams in central midfield. I don't think he would be up to it."
