Brighton’s White replaces Alexander-Arnold in England Euro squad

Gareth Southgate has chosen Ben White to replace the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in England’s Euro 2020 squad after an impressive performance in the 1-0 win over Romania.

The 23-year-old Brighton central defender made his international debut in the 1-0 friendly win over Austria last week and backed that up in Sunday’s match against the Romanians.

Alexander-Arnold was ruled out after suffering a thigh injury in the Austria match “and Southgate took his time to decide which of his standby players would come in.

White had an outstanding season for Brighton — his first in the Premier League — after being pivotal to Leeds United’s promotion from the Championship while on loan in the 2019/20 campaign.
