Southgate to bench Trent v Slovenia

Trent Alexander-Arnold will not start the Slovenia game on Tuesday, the Athletic report. Conor Gallagher will replace him in England's starting XI.

The decision does not necessarily mean that Gareth Southgate will no longer use the Liverpool vice-captain in the midfield role. The call is down to the Three Lions' boss desire to rotate the squad in the third group-stage game.

England are on four points after two games and a draw against Slovenia will be enough to qualify for the knockout stages.

Trent has started in both of England's both games at the Euros so far, although he was brought off in the second half on both occasions. Southgate has used him in the midfield and it has generated a lot of debate among English fans and pundits.
