Trent Alexander-Arnold's performance against Manchester United on Thursday has been described as one of the best ever by a full back.
The Liverpool right back was a key part of Liverpool's win against their fierce rivals in midweek, in the game that was postponed due to the protests outside Old Trafford.
Alexander-Arnold set up Roberto Firmino for the goal that put Jurgen Klopp's side ahead in the first half and was a constant threat against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team, as Liverpool were much the better team.
The 22-year-old once again proved that his early season loss of form, that saw him drop out of the England squad recently, is well behind him.
Following the game, former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino claimed Alexander-Arnold's performance was one of the best he'd seen, comparing him to the likes of Roberto Carlos and Cafu.
"I think Trent was amazing," Cascarino said on talkSPORT's 'Weekend Breakfast' show on Saturday.
"I can't think of too many better full-back performances - I'm going back to Roberto Carlos, Cafu, Philipp Lahm, I thought he was extraordinary on the night.
"His right foot is just a joy to watch, how dangerous it can be."
After missing out on Gareth Southgate's last squad there has been questions whether or not the Liverpool born right back would make the Euros.
The position is one of the most hotly contended in the Three Lions squad for this summer's tournament, but Cascarino believes Alexander-Arnold has to go.
"I've heard that Gareth Southgate's favourite right-back is Reece James, more than Kyle Walker," he added.
"But he might change the way he plays, he might go three at the back and have Walker as the right-sided player in the three, and then have James as the right wing-back.
"Let's say we're playing against Belgium and they had Eden Hazard and he was really fit - which he hasn't been all year to be fair - but if he was and he was up against Trent, I'd be worried about Trent.
"But I just can't imagine how you can leave someone so good, especially if you need to beat teams and someone who needs to make a difference - Trent would have to go!
"He would have to, for me.
"If you're playing a team you think you should beat and you know they haven't got a left sided player who is really dangerous, again, Trent has got to play!"
The Premier League winner's chances of going to the Euros have been improved by the fact teams can call up 26 players into the squad, instead of the usual 23.
England have been playing with four at the back in recent games but, if Harry Maguire's injury keeps him out of the Euros, Southgate could revert to a back five again.
