Former Manchester United player Gary Alexander Neville has named a player who could become a potential World Cup liability for England.

Gary Neville thinks England can lose the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar due to Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold’s defensive vulnerabilities

Neville believes Alexander-Arnold has the qualities to become the greatest right-back in the world, but all of that attributes are outweighed by glaring defensive errors, which could affect his World Cup inclusion.

It is still unknown if Alexander-Arnold will travel to Qatar after England head coach Gareth Southgate named his 2022 FIFA World Cup squad on Thursday.

“It is a really tough one with [Trent] Alexander-Arnold,” Neville told Sky Sports after Liverpool defeated 2-1 in a tie on Sunday. “His brilliance going forward is out of this world.

“But we’re talking about knockout football. Whether England wins or loses in a World Cup is going to be to moments. A mistake – concentration. At this moment in time, I can’t see how Gareth can go into a knockout game in a World Cup playing Trent Alexander-Arnold.

this player to be the greatest right-back of all time because he has got the ability to do that. But at times at Tottenham, he looked like he could cost Liverpool dearly.
