Jurgen Klopp has been texting Liverpool FC star during the World Cup

Postado Julho 11, 2018

With Germany eliminated, it sounds like Jurgen Klopp is now rooting for England to go the whole way in Russian Federation.

And Henderson is expected to once again be a pivotal player if the Three Lions are to make it to the final.

"Yeah [regular contact] after games normally, and he's so happy", Henderson said prior to the victory over Sweden.

"The final? France-England. And in that case, I see England as favourites". "Come on!' So he's buzzing that we're doing well".

Understandably engulfed by the World Cup like the rest of the nation, Stokes and Co thought they would give penalties a go during their training session at Trent Bridge ahead of this evening's semi-final with Croatia.

Henderson helped England to claim a 2-0 win over Sweden in the quarter-finals in their most recent outing on Saturday, as Gareth Southgate's men set up a semi-final showdown with Croatia.

Having played a crucial role in Southgate's plans up to this point, Henderson has acknowledged the influence of Liverpool's run to the Champions League final last season in England's success in Russian Federation this summer.

"Playing in those big games is something special and it gives you confidence to know that you can perform at the very, very top against the best players in the world and I've just tried to continue that with England".
