The 19-year-old right-back has had a splendid season for Liverpool which was capped by a call-up to England’s World Cup squad despite not having yet made his debut for the senior national side.

The defender helped the Reds reach the Champions League final after eleven years.

Ronaldo is going for his fifth Champions League winner’s medal having also lifted the trophy with Manchester United in 2008.

Alexander-Arnold who classed Ronaldo as “one of the best players ever”, is confident the Portuguese can be shut down by an improving Liverpool defence.

“Obviously it will be,” he said when asked if facing Ronaldo is the biggest challenge of his young career.

“He’s one of the best players ever. He’s done unbelievable things in the game, but he’s got weaknesses as well, as every player has.

“On Saturday we’ll try to exploit them and stop him from doing what he does best, to stop him from scoring.
