Liverpool’s Henderson aiming to make England World Cup squad
Wednesday 23 October 2013
Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has admitted that he must show consistency throughout this season if he is to make Roy Hodgson’s squad for the 2014 World Cup, the Liverpool Echo has reported.
Henderson, who joined Liverpool from Sunderland in 2011, has said that his move to Anfield his helped his England chances, and he has featured prominently for the U-21s. Despite that, his last cap for the senior side came during Euro 2012, with Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Jack Wilshere among those preferred to the 23-year-old.
He has made a good start to this season, playing the full 90 minutes in all of Liverpool’s Premier League games so far this season, helping the Reds to third in the table, behind Arsenal and Chelsea.
And Henderson believes that he must improve to make it to Brazil, with England having secured their qualification by beating Poland on October 15. He said: “I still have a long way to go to be where I want to be. I need to improve. But if I keep playing well then hopefully I will get an opportunity with England.
“I feel as though I have improved 100% since I have come to Liverpool. I look at my game when I was younger, and you compare my game now I think I have improved massively. Hopefully I can carry that on.”
