Trent Alexander-Arnold Is Being Called The 'Best Crosser Since David Beckham'
Trent Alexander-Arnold has received the highest of praise from fans after comparing his ability to David Beckham.
The 20-year-old Liverpool right-back was handed a start in England's third-placed playoff match in the Nations League against Switzerland.
And Gareth Southgate's faith in starting the Reds starlet ahead of Kyle Walker was rewarded in his performance today.
Trent's crossing in the match has been impressive, so much so that Manchester United legend Gary Neville compared him to Beckham.
But Neville isn't alone in the bold claim as many fans have echoed the same sentiments on social media.
Bold statement but I think Trent could be England's best crosser of a ball since Beckham- Alex Broom (@alexbroom_) 9 June 2019

How much did it destroy Gary Neville to say that Trent's delivery is as close to David Beckham's as he's seen :eyes:- Nath (@Nathan_Clinch) 9 June 2019
Beckham was better on dead ball situations than Trent, but Trent can improve.

Gary Neville just compared Trent Alexander Arnold's ability to David Beckham.
I never wanna see Man Utd fans compare Trent to their Primark Nathaniel Clyne, (when they sign him)

Callum Wilson came off the bench and thought that he had scored the winner for the Three Lions.
However, VAR sprung into action and ruled out the 27-year-old Bournemouth striker from making his mark in the match.
The match remains 0-0 and will now be heading into extra-time.
Will England secure third place?
