The 22-year-old had earned a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad before cruelly picking up the muscle problem in a friendly at Wembley.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are returning to pre-season on July 12, a date Alexander-Arnold may well be working towards.
There was yet more positive news for the German manager this week as Mohamed Salah was refused permission to participate in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
The same decision is expected to be made over new signing Ibrahima Konate, whilst Takumi Minamino was omitted from the Japan squad for the tournament.
READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Albeit picking up an injury is never ideal, many associated with Liverpool will be thankful Alexander-Arnold was ruled out when he was and not later on in the summer break.
All told many international Reds are getting a richly deserved break from the action, with Diogo Jota perhaps the heaviest worked thus far.
Captain Jordan Henderson has only recently returned to the fold for England and both Thiago and Roberto Firmino have been scarcely used by their respective nations.
Klopp will be hopeful all his star names return to Kirkby with a clean bill of health, fit and raring to go.
