“I haven’t met him, but I would love to. I’m a massive fans of him. Hopefully, down the line, we can cross paths and have a chat.”
The 27-year-old former Burnley defender also added that while he did try to learn from Beckham regarding the delivery using the right foot, he also had another legend in mind when working on his crosses, and that is Andrea Pirlo.
Trippier started his youth career at Manchester City as a right-winger and that is something he highlighted, as he still speaks to his coach from City.
The defender did add that there is always room for improvement and that he still keeps on practising.
All that hard work seems to be paying off for our star as the Englishman is third on the list of chances created in the World Cup.
Trippier is only behind Neymar and Kevin de Bruyne in terms of chances created in Russia and is ahead of the likes of Philippe Coutinho, Eden Hazard and Luka Modric.
The Englishman highlighted that the formation from Gareth Southgate has worked brilliantly for him as he gets to attack a lot.
“The formation is perfect for me – I get forward as much as I can and try to get the crosses in and help my team as much as I can. If I manage to help them I am delighted.”
England fans will be expecting another quality performance from Trippier as we face the Swedes and the Tottenham man does know how to deal with pressure, given how easily he tucked away a penalty during the shootout against Colombia in the round of 16.
