‘Gradually turning into world class’ – Liverpool fans on Twitter all praising Anfield lynchpin

After scoring both goals including the stoppage time winner in England’s 2-1 win against Tunisia last night, Harry Kane has grabbed all the headlines.

However, Jordan Henderson has also come in for praise with Liverpool fans, of course, quick to highlight their club captain’s performance.

Henderson often comes under criticism for some of his displays in an England shirt, but the Liverpool midfielder impressed in the Three Lions opening game of the World Cup and justified his selection ahead of Tottenham’s Eric Dier.

Manager Gareth Southgate made it clear prior to the Tunisia match that he only wanted to play with one holding midfielder and Henderson, who tends to play more ambitious passes than someone like Dier, for example, has shown he was indeed the suitable choice for the type of encounter England played out against Tunisia.

And while Southgate may go for Dier in England’s last group game against Belgium to give the side more defensive stability against the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku, it’s likely to be more beneficial to have Henderson in midfield again when the Three Lions take on Panama on Sunday.

The exact thoughts of Liverpool supporters on Henderson can be found below…
