Jack Grealish admits it is "unfortunate" Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss Euro 2020 - as England would have benefited from his set-piece prowess.

Alexander-Arnold is facing a race against time to be ready for pre-season after suffering a thigh injury during his country's pre-tournament friendly against Austria last week.

Grealish was the most fouled player in the Premier League this season and was regularly a target during England's recent friendlies against Austria and Romania.

And the Aston Villa midfielder believes Gareth Southgate's side would have subsequently benefited from Alexander-Arnold's dead-ball ability.

"I got a few kicks last week in the two games, but like I said after those games if I am doing something to help the team then I will do that," said Grealish.

"You look around our team and see the set-piece takers we have got, especially Tripps (Kieran Trippier).

"It was unfortunate that Trent went home, but there are still so many people who have absolutely unbelievable set-piece delivery. So if I am getting fouled I will take the hits for the team. That doesn't really bother me."

Grealish also expressed admiration for Jordan Henderson and the example the Liverpool skipper sets for his compatriots.

“You come here and you see the likes of Jordan Henderson and Harry Kane, and what they do off the field," he added.

“Obviously, what they do on it, we can all see that. But what they do on the training pitch, around the place and how they look after themselves.

“You sit there and think ‘it’s no wonder why they have the careers that they have had’. I think that’s one of the main things that has made me mature as a player, as a person and as a captain.”

England begin their Euro 2020 campaign against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday. The tournament starts on Friday evening when Italy take on Turkey in Rome.
