Trent Alexander-Arnold the hero as Liverpool defeat Real Madrid in FIFA 20
According to the Telegraph, Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold helped the Reds inflict a crushing victory over Vinicius Junior’s Real Madrid side to progress to the quarter-finals of the FIFA Stay and Play cup, organized by EA Sports.
An overwhelming presence on the pitch, the 21-year old is an equally tough nut to crack off it. Be it real or simulated, Alexander-Arnold truly packs an offensive punch.
Our academy graduate ensured that Liverpool got back at Real Madrid for the 2018 UEFA Champions League final with a 4-1 thrashing.
It was Real Madrid who took the lead when Karim Benzema opened the scoring on 12 minutes. The Frenchman had similarly given Los Blancos the lead in Kyiv two years ago.
But that was as good as it got for Madrid as Jordan Henderson showcased his ability to led from the front to draw his side level.
It was all Liverpool after the break as Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a two-goal cushion. Henderson put the result beyond doubt with his second of the game.
