Jude Bellingham sends Jordan Henderson ‘respect’ message to fans after display vs Senegal

England star Jude Bellingham has taken to social media on Sunday evening, to unveil a personal message in support of teammate Jordan Henderson.

The name of midfield sensation Bellingham has of course taken its place front and centre in the headlines late tonight.

This comes owing to his latest stellar display on the international front.

England kicked their World Cup campaign back into gear a short time ago, ultimately emerging on the right side of a dominant 3-0 scoreline against Senegal, courtesy of goals from all of the aforementioned Henderson, Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka.

It is not the Three Lions’ latest crop of goalscorers, though, who have been singled out for the most widespread adulation post-match.

This honour, instead, has been reserved for Jude Bellingham.

Afforded his latest start by Gareth Southgate, the Borussia Dortmund prodigy enjoyed an outing to remember against Senegal, teeing up the game’s opener amid a wonderful all-round showing.

But, on the back of the action coming to a close in Al Khor, Bellingham was keen to shift attentions onto one of his midfield partners on the night.

Taking to his official Twitter account, the 19-year-old called for ‘respect’ for Jordan Henderson.

This comes after the Liverpool star silenced his detractors once more, courtesy of a leader’s performance in his return to starting duties for England:
