Gerrard Reveals What He Said To Jordan Henderson After Croatia Loss

Jordan Henderson reveals texts from Jurgen Klopp during England's World Cup campaign

The German has been enjoying the Three Lions’ progress as much as everyone else

I just keep seeing texts saying, 'Yes England!

For many people, Henderson's performances in the central midfield have been a vital part of England's run to the semi-finals, and the Liverpool player has shown his importance by cementing a place in the side ahead of rival Eric Dier.

'I think that's the biggest thing so far to come out of it and we just want to continue doing everybody proud'.

The former Sunderland shot-stopper may face an even busier evening against Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday where England will attempt to reach a first World Cup final since they won the tournament in 1966.

"He has absolutely emptied the tank for both England and Liverpool this year".

Henderson has started all but one of England's games - the 1-0 defeat to Belgium when Southgate made eight changes to his starting XI in the final Group G match. "They've got a lot of players from different areas, we are looking to stop them tomorrow night".

Henderson really started coming into his own in the second half of the season for Liverpool and helped them get into the final of the Champions League, after his performances in Russian Federation he's really cementing himself as a top central midfielder.

"I think he's had his fair share of criticism over the previous year or so, but he's done so well over the last six months, really, especially after the start of the season".

"For me, he's got everything a centre-half needs: he's aggressive, good in the air, can play out from the back, good on the ball and he's a real leader as well, which is massive as a defender, always talking".

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