Jordan Henderson calls for ‘strength’ against Croatia

England need to win

Jordan Henderson has spoken about England’s chances against Croatia.

The side who knocked England out of the World Cup this summer will face the Three Lions during their next international fixture.

England know all about the World Cup runners up, and Hendo noted that England want to ease some of the hurt.

Standard Sport report he said “I am not sure it will make up for the summer. That is where you have got to look to improve, to better yourself. That is a good game to show that we have improved since then,

“We have come a long way in a short space of time. Our focus will be on winning our next couple of games when we meet up, especially the Croatia one.”

Winning games

England may have improved under Gareth Southgate, and certainly have the feel good factor back, but they need to win things.

So, far that of course hasn’t happened, and Henderson also mentioned that.

Not only was he pleased to see England get back to winning ways, but he noted that they need to keep on at that.

Winning will become a habit, and it’s one England need to get in to.

He carried on: “We want to win as many games as we can.

“Top teams do that, they keep winning and get into that winning habit. That is why it was important against Switzerland. Even though it was only a friendly. Overall we have to be pleased with the result.

“We have got to be proud of the summer. We know as soon as we get back to business people would be asking questions, and rightly so.

“We have not won anything yet. Those questions will keep getting asked, until you win something.”
