While Trent Alexander Arnold had an outstanding participation in England's victory over Malta as part of the activity on the penultimate date of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, it was Harvey Elliott's turn to do his job, but from the under-21 category , an element that has proven to be the best in its group in the most recent calls where it has always managed to achieve goal-scoring plays. In this match against Serbia, Elliott had a great performance that rewarded him with a spectacular goal from outside the area, the Reds player sealing one more victory for his team that sees him as one of the most serious prospects to occupy a position within the group led by Gareth Southgate.

Elliott's outstanding participation from midfield must have Southgate happy today but at the same time stressed, since the England coach has found in Alexander Arnold a good midfielder who can fulfill all the functions of several of his teammates in the position, but at the same time Elliott has put pressure on him to be called up to the first team and demonstrate his abilities.

Perhaps the gap that can make Elliott a first-team player is in the retirement of Jordan Henderson, with that vacant position being the one he would use to try to consolidate himself for future Southgate call-ups, although the competition for a place in that area is difficult. since men like Jude Bellingham have an advantage over the young element of the Reds.

Elliott must push his abilities to the limit

This Reds player is obviously one of the most complete profiles to be able to occupy a position in the English team's squad, but as there is strong competition within the midfield, Elliott could choose to exploit his resources in another position. With Liverpool, he has good performance both as a center back and as a winger on both wings, his multifunctionality perhaps being the key for Southgate to consider him as a key player in future games.
