Fans demand that one player must start England's first Euro 2024 group match vs Serbia

Fans demand that one player must start England's first Euro 2024 group match vs Serbia

England beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0 at St James' Park.

Fans are demanding that Gareth Southgate picks one player for England's Euro 2024 first group stage match against Serbia after the Three Lions beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0.

England produced a morale-boosting second half display at St James' Park, with goals from Cole Palmer, Trent Alexander-Arnold and captain Harry Kane.

For Southgate, the friendly was an opportunity to watch his players in match conditions as he prepares to make some key decisions over his Euro 2024 squad.

He named a 33-man provisional squad last month, with the number having to be cut to 26 by the June 8 deadline as per UEFA regulations.

But it was also another chance for Southgate to formulate exactly who will be in his starting XI when England take on Serbia on June 16.

And after an impressive play in the centre of midfield alongside Conor Gallagher, fans are convinced that Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold must start in that position in the first group match.

The Reds full-back scored a superb volley from a tight angle into the bottom left corner to make it 2-0 to England.

Check out the goal below.

And many fans were saying the same thing after watching his performance at St James' Park.

One wrote: "Really good second half. Hopefully Trent starts against Serbia on the 16th of June."

A second said: "Trent Alexander-Arnold starts at the Euros, been saying it for months."

A third added: "Trent Alexander-Arnold been running the game and now gets a goal for it, what a player, surely he's in Southgate's 11 for the start of the Euros."

A fourth mused: "I do think Southgate has to find a place for Alexander-Arnold at the Euros."

And a fifth fan predicted England's entire midfield: "For me, England's midfield three for the Euros has to be Rice, Bellingham and Alexander-Arnold. Trent has to be one of the best passers of a football in the world, long or short."
