‘It can be frustrating’: Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson makes England role admission

‘It can be frustrating’: Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson makes England role admission

Jordan Henderson’s first England goal

Saturday’s win over Ukraine was a historic one for both England and Jordan Henderson.

Firstly, the result saw the Three Lions reach the semi-final stage of a European Championship tournament for just the second time ever – the first occasion having of course come back in 1996.

The 4-0 drubbing of Ukraine, though, was also particularly special for Jordan Henderson.

Henderson came off the bench to net England’s final goal of the game, which also happened to be his first-ever goal for his country.

Henderson frustrated

On the back of Saturday’s win, though, Henderson has since opened up on his frustration with his current England role.

For many, a Henderson-Declan Rice midfield pairing seemed like the obvious choice for the Three Lions this summer.

However, the former then picked up a long-term injury whilst playing for Liverpool, which meant that he was not up to full fitness at the start of Euro 2020.

This led to Gareth Southgate using both Rice and Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips, the latter of whom has put in a number of solid displays so far at the tournament.

Henderson, who now appears to be fully fit, has as a result only been handed a bit-part role in England’s recent games.

And the Liverpool star, in turn, has gone on to label the situation as ‘difficult’ and ‘frustrating’:

“(It’s) difficult when you’re not playing, it can be frustrating at times especially when you’re not starting in games but you’ve just got to make sure you’re ready, train well.

“Of course, I’ve been out for a long time coming into the tournament so to be here is a big plus for me and to be contributing is really important but of course you want to be playing as much as possible as a player.

“You’ve got to train as hard as possible and be ready for when you’re needed.”
