But no one will be watching Trippier as closely as his dad Chris, who is hoping his son can repeat his heroics after scoring in the World Cup semi-final in 2018.
Chris, from Bury, Greater Manchester, has already spoken to his son from the England training camp and wished him well.
And he believes football could finally come home this summer as Gareth Southgate's men prepare for their first game on Sunday.
He told The Sun Online: "I am very confident England will do very well and hopefully win it.

Hod carrier Chris is rooting for Kieran for more reasons than one - claiming the star should become the next captain if Harry Kane hangs up the armband.
And he said he wasn't surprised to see his son's name appear in Southgate's 26-man squad.
Chris added: "I was confident as Gareth seems to like him.
"In fact I wouldn't be surprised if he in next in line for the captain's armband after Harry Kane.
"And I have no worries about there being so many full-backs as they can all play in different positions."
Trippier is currently at the centre of transfer market speculation with Man Utd hoping to sign the ex-Spurs star.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be eager to strengthen his options at right-back - potentially moving Aaron Wan-Bissaka to a different position.Most read in SportLive BlogRED DEVILS NEWSStunning £91m Jadon Sancho deal AGREED, Trippier £10m offer rejectedSHE'S CESC-YMeet stunning Daniella Semaan, a mum-of-five and better known as Mrs FabregasWOOD'NT DAREWatch as Jake Paul is 'too scared' to look in UFC star Tyron Woodley's eyesCOST CUTTINGWWE set to release even MORE stars as Vince McMahon's brutal cuts continueVideoCHECK NATENate Diaz smokes WEED at press conference just two days before Edwards fightnad for itDjokovic vs Nadal FREE: Live stream, TV channel and start time
Trippier helped Atletico bag the La Liga title in May after joining the Spanish club from Tottenham in 2019 for around £20million.
The Bury-native grew up as a Utd fan despite playing for rivals City as a schoolboy.
But with an opening £10million bid rejected by the top-flight Spanish team, Trippier might not be returning home any time soon.6Trippier will be watched closely by Utd this tournamentCredit: Getty He recently helped Atletico win La Liga Kieran Trippier in training drills with Atletico Madrid

But he failed to show up to work - with cops later discovering the motor in the car park of Cow Green Reservoir in County Durham.
Police today confirmed they yesterday found a body in the search for the missing dad-of-three.
Although formal identification has not taken place, police believe it belongs to missing Glen.
They do not believe there are any suspicious circumstances surrounding his death and a report will be prepared for the coroner in due course.
Detective Chief Inspector Angela Hufton, of Northumbria Police, said: "This has been an incredibly difficult time for Glen’s family and in particular his partner Kim who has had to put on a brave face for their three young children.
"They have been desperate for answers about Glen’s disappearance and this was the news they have been dreading in recent weeks.
"Father’s Day was always going to be difficult for Kim and her children but it will now forever be associated with Glen’s body being discovered.
"We will continue to support them and would ask that their privacy is respected so they can take the time they need to grieve."'AMAZING DAD'
The tragic discovery comes just days after his family made a desperate plea for information ahead of Father's Day.
Kim Jackson, his partner of more than 20 years, said last Thursday: "These have been the worst two months of our lives and we have found it really difficult to come to terms with why Glen went missing.
"This Sunday is Father’s Day and Glen was an amazing dad who would do anything for his kids. This weekend will just be another reminder of how much he is missed.
"We have had to celebrate birthdays without him and put on a brave face for his three children but they just want to know where their dad is.
"It is hard to accept that he will never come home but we still don’t know for certain that he has gone into the water and are desperate for some answers.
"We would ask anyone who has visited the reservoir in the last few months to think about whether they were there on that day and whether they may have seen Glen.
"It may have not meant much to you at the time but if you can recall even the tiniest of details then it could make a huge difference to our family."Most read in NewsExclusiveOUT OF THIS WORLDUFO filmed 'going 106mph & only visible on infrared' by UK police chopperVILE ATTACKShocking moment racist woman is caught kicking dog in face in disturbing attackExclusiveMAJOR REVENGEPrince Harry agreed to Oprah interview 24 hours after losing military titlesExclusiveBEASTS OF URBANGruesome moment crow and huge rat have fight in ‘worst streets’ of DerbyPictured'FULL OF LIFE'Family of girl killed in front of dad pay tribute to 'beautiful' daughterGraphic WarningMINDLESS ACTRoad rage driver, 19, jailed after leaving elderly man with fractured jaw
