Gary Lineker disagrees on major decision impacting Trent Alexander-Arnold

Gary Lineker has criticized Gareth Southgate’s choice to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold with Conor Gallagher in England’s win over Serbia. Pre-match, debate centered on Alexander-Arnold playing in midfield instead of right-back.

 Despite criticism, Southgate maintained his plan, and Alexander-Arnold performed well. Southgate praised his positioning and effort on goal, explaining Gallagher’s substitution was for fresh legs. 

However, on The Rest is Football podcast, Lineker argued the substitution was odd, stating, “They weren’t keeping the ball and brought on a player less likely to keep it [Gallagher].”
