Trippier given England lifeline as Southgate jets to Madrid for Atletico’s clash with Leganes – The Sun

KIERAN TRIPPER is being given the chance to push for an England recall.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate is heading to Spain to watch Trippier’s Atletico Madrid side against Leganes tomorrow.

The former Spurs right-back starred at the World Cup in Russia but was left out of June’s Uefa Nations League finals.

Southgate names his England squad on Thursday for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers with Bulgaria at Wembley and Kosovo in Southampton.

Kyle Walker, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are also vying for the two right-back spots but Trippier is being given a chance to prove how he is adjusting to La Liga.

The full-back completed a £20million summer transfer to Atletico, signing on a three-year deal.

Trippier impressed on his competitive debut setting up Alvaro Morata with an inch perfect cross which was headed home by the ex-Chelsea striker. 

James Maddison is also being tipped for a call-up and will be watched today when Sheffield United take on Leicester.
