Share

England midfielder Jordan Henderson says he should be ready to play against Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals after experiencing a tight hamstring.

England's medical team are monitoring Henderson's situation and will manage it ahead of the match. The support we've had has been unbelievable and we just wanted to make everybody so proud.

'It's down to us as a team.

"And it will be the making of him and people will realise the player and the leader he is". Of course, I want to win. But it's not down to any individual or one player. It's down to what we do behind the scenes, what we work on in training, all the hard work to get here. "The biggest thing for me is just continuing to win - and hopefully a few more wins over the next week".

Pickford only made his full England debut in November 2017, just seven months before the World Cup in Russian Federation, but he made crucial saves in the team's round-of-16 penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia.

In the meeting, BCCI acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim and CEO Rahul Johri were also present. However, it was twin defeat against minnows Bangladesh in the Asia Cup including one in the final, that became the last straw.

The England regular spoke highly of fellow midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic along with Liverpool team-mate Dejan Lovren.

"I think there is a lot more to come but finally they see Jordan Henderson", the Liverpool manager said, as reported by "Sky Sports". "But, at the end of the day, Dejan is a fantastic defender".

"But he is not only a workhorse, he is a really good footballer as well so I am happy for him that he is getting a little bit of the light and [it is] well deserved".

He had a very strong World Cup and he also had a very strong Champions League run for Liverpool.

"People are starting to appreciate him now, whereas I've appreciated him all along". "We had better keep him fit!"
