Dean Henderson replaces Aston Villa’s Tom Heaton in England squad

Czech Republic vs England

England are set to kick-off their international break on Friday the 11th of October, when they take on the Czech Republic.

Friday’s clash will be England’s 5th Euro 2020 qualifier, with Gareth Southgate’s side having emerged victorious from the previous four.

England have already taken on the Czech Republic once as part of these qualifiers, and they would comprehensively beat them 5-0.

After a perfect start, England currently sit top of their qualifying group, with Friday’s opponents the Czech Republic currently behind them in 2nd spot with nine points.

Heaton replaced by Henderson

Southgate would release his England squad for their next two games last week.

It would include the same three goalkeepers that participated in England’s last international break.

They were Jordan Pickford, Tom Heaton and Nick Pope.

However, on Tuesday evening, Sheffield United would announce that their main shot-stopper, Dean Henderson, has been called up to England’s senior side, to replace Aston Villa’s Tom Heaton:

The Blades number one has been added to Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, to replace Aston Villa’s Tom Heaton who has returned to his club for further assessment on an injury sustained at the weekend.

Chris Wilder had this to say on Henderson being called up:

“This is fantastic recognition for Dean and the club as a whole. Everyone at Sheffield United will be delighted to hear this news.”
