England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold was ruled out of the European Championship on Thursday with a left thigh injury sustained during a warmup match.

The Liverpool right-back hobbled off just before the end of a 1-0 win over Austria on Wednesday.

The English Football Association said a scan showed that Alexander-Arnold would be unable to play in the tournament. England manager Gareth Southgate will not replace him in the 26-man squad until after Sunday's final warmup game against Romania.

Alexander-Arnold was one of four right-backs selected by Southgate in the squad. England opens its Euro 2020 campaign on June 13 against Croatia.
