Trent Alexander-Arnold has been named in the latest England U19 squad for games against Luxembourg, Greece and Wales, where he may face Liverpool team-mate Ben Woodburn.
The full-back, 18, made his full competitive debut for Liverpool in last month’s EFL Cup Round Of 16 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.
Alexander-Arnold will again represent his country in the UEFA European Qualifiers, where he has made four appearances, scoring twice, since making his debut in September.
The right-back, who can also play as a midfielder, has made a phenomenal start to the season, making the step up to U23 level before signing a professional contract.
The youngster, who signed from Merseyside rivals Everton, impressed for Michael Beale’s second string side, making seven appearances, scoring twice and providing a further two assists.
This form has led to the full-back training at the first-team’s training base at Melwood, where he caught the eye of manager Jurgen Klopp, and went on to make his full debut for the Reds.
Woodburn has been named in the latest Wales U19s squad for their ties with Luxembourg and Greece, as well as their showdown with England on 12 November.
The young winger’s form has dipped a little since his last call-up, not scoring in seven competitive appearances.
His last goal for the U23s came in mid-September, when he scored in the Reds’ 6-2 win at Tottenham, but still holds an impressive record of six goals in 14 starts for Beale’s men.
