Trent Alexander-Arnold capped an impressive individual display with a tremendous volley as England beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 3-0 in their latest Euro 2024 warm-up friendly.

Preparations for this summer’s shot at silverware stepped up at St James’ Park as players got a chance to stake their claim for a place on the plane, or even a starting role against Serbia.

Cole Palmer’s spot-kick was followed by an excellent Alexander-Arnold effort and late Harry Kane goal on a night that provided manager Gareth Southgate with plenty of food for thought ahead of Friday’s final squad submission.

Eberechi Eze and Palmer produced positive displays on their first England starts, with the latter opening his international account after Ezri Konsa, another impressive performer, was fouled in the box. Alexander-Arnold did well on his latest audition in midfield but had reverted to a more familiar right-back role when he scored a superb late volley that substitute Kane added to.

GOAL! England 1-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

60 mins: GOAL! Cole Palmer steps up on his first England start, and he rifles the penalty across his penalty and into the bottom right corner.

PENALTY! England 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina

It looks like there are two hands on Konsa’s shirt as he runs in. Pretty damning on the replay.

And it’s given! Tahirovic is booked too.
