Trent Alexander Arnold Benched For Euro 2024 Semifinal Clash Between Netherlands And England

English full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, a key player for Liverpool and the England national team, finds himself on the bench for the crucial Euro 2024 semifinal match against the Netherlands.

In the ongoing European Championship, Alexander-Arnold has not started any matches for England under the management of Gareth Southgate, despite being a regular in the central-midfield role alongside Declan Rice in the opener against Serbia.

The decision to leave out the attacking-minded full-back in such a significant knockout encounter signals a shift in tactical approach by Southgate and the Three Lions.

As per UEFA rules, accumulation of two yellow cards results in a player being suspended for a game, which may have influenced the decision to keep Alexander-Arnold out of the starting lineup.

The quarterfinal stage saw all yellow cards wiped out, ensuring that no player carried the risk of suspension into the semifinals. However, red cards in the previous stage could still lead to a player being sidelined for the final if a ban of two or more games is imposed.
