However, Alexander-Arnold sparked controversy before the game by refusing to sing ‘God Save The Queen’ when the anthem was played over the loudspeaker.

Every player was singing along, but Alexander-Arnold remained motionless. Fans slammed him on social media because the game coincided with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Of course, Alexander-Arnold is a proud Liverpudlian, and many Merseysiders proudly proclaim that they are ‘Scouse, not English.’ Liverpool fans booed the national anthem and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, before the FA Cup final against Chelsea last month. Many people in Liverpool are well aware that they do not support the England national team at major tournaments.

The contempt derives from the Conservative government’s mismanagement of the city in the 1980s, as well as its failures in the aftermath of the Hillsborough catastrophe, in which 97 Liverpool supporters died.

“The people do not do it for no cause,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp responded to the reporters.

Alexander-Arnold just lasted an hour in Budapest before being substituted by Chelsea’s Reece James.

Hungarian spectators booed England players for kneeling, an action made all the more worrisome by the fact that the stadium was packed with 40,000 youngsters. The match was originally scheduled to be held behind closed doors, but a FIFA judgement permitted local school children to attend with adult chaperones.

Following the uproar surrounding Trent Alexander-Arnold, footage has surfaced showing Gary Neville refusing to sign the national anthem.

The song was being belted out by almost every player in the starting XI, but the Liverpool defender remained motionless. Alexander-Arnold was criticized by several fans on social media as the match coincided with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Many Liverpool fans, on the other hand, were pleased with their right-reluctance. back’s

As a result, someone has posted a video showing former Manchester United captain Neville refusing to sing the national anthem at Euro ’96. Neville, who has 85 England caps, did not join teammates Gareth Southgate, Tony Adams, and Stuart Pearce in singing the song with zeal.

The video has received over 50,000 views, and there has been a lot of backlash against Southgate, who is currently the England manager.
