England has lost its last three matches, but Kieran Trippier is not overly concerned by its run.

Kieran Trippier insists England is not concerned by its recent run of defeats as it focuses on continuing to build its team.

The Three Lions reached the World Cup semifinals in July, but lost in extra-time to Croatia in the last four, was beaten by Belgium in the third-place playoff and then suffered a Nations League defeat to Spain at Wembley on Saturday.

While the sequence of losses might have dampened some of the enthusiasm gained from Russia 2018, England star Trippier is confident Gareth Southgate's men are moving in the right direction.

'Not a concern'

"It is not a concern. We are building and that is all we can do, play against these teams," he said. "We want to test ourselves against the best and certainly we put up a fight [against Spain].

 

"We knew it was going to be a difficult game, these are the teams we want to play against. We started bright and got the early goal and then to concede straightaway after was disappointing. They passed it around very well in the first half, we talked about that coming out into the second. I thought we played much better in the second half. We got it down and we played and we were unlucky not to come out with a draw."
