Who is Kieran Trippier?
Kieran Trippier is an English professional footballer who plays as a right-back for La Liga club Atlético Madrid and the England national team. Trippier began his career in the youth system at Manchester City, but he failed to break into the first team despite two loans to Championship club Barnsley. Burnley signed him on a season-long loan in 2011, which was made permanent in January 2012 for an undisclosed fee. Two consecutive seasons in 2012-13 and 2013-14, he was named to the Championship PFA Team of the Year. Burnley finished runners-up in the Championship in 2014, earning him a promotion to the Premier League. He signed for Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £3.5 million a year later.
Following his four years at Tottenham Hotspur, where he was part of the squad that finished runners-up in the 2019 Champions League final, Trippier joined Atletico Madrid, where he helped the club win the 2020-21 La Liga title. Trippier also represented England at all levels from under-18 to under-21, playing at the 2009 UEFA European Under-19 Championship and the 2009 FIFAU-20 World Cup. A member of the team that reached the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he made his senior international debut in June 2017.

Background of Kieran Trippier
Kieran John Trippier is his full name. His mother, Eleanor Trippier Lomax, and father, Chris Trippier, welcomed him into the world on September 19, 1990, in Bury, United Kingdom. Trippier came from a humble family and was raised in the home of a happy Tree Surgeon, arborist, and arboriculturist.
His father's job entails the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants, so don't be confused. This was a low-paying job back then, particularly for a man with four sons. Chris and Eleanor's lives were never easy.
Trippier grew up as the youngest child of his parents. Chris, Curtis, and Kelvin were his three brothers, and he was the youngest of them all. Summerseat is a village in Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester, where all of the boys grew up. Growing up in this area conjures up images of football.

National Team Experience of Kieran Trippier
After an impressive season for Tottenham, Kieran Trippier received his first England call-up in May 2017, making his debut in a 3-2 defeat to France in June.
Perhaps Trippier's finest moment came during the 2018 World Cup semi-final, when he struck a marvellous free-kick into the top right corner from 25 yards to put England 1-0 up. Ultimately, however, it would prove in vain as Croatia went on to score twice and win the match.
Trippier was also part of the 26-man squad for the rescheduled Euro 2020, providing the cross for Luke Shaw in the opening minute of the final against Italy.
However, once again England failed to hold on to a lead and succumbed to Italy on penalties. Trippier's famous free-kick is his only international goal in 35 caps.
