Liverpool only have the one player in the England squad for Euro 2020 this summer. Injuries have greatly reduced the amount of Reds to turn out at the tournament. Our captain reached a landmark moment this weekend. Twitter is ecstatic for Jordan Henderson after his first England goal during the win over Ukraine.
England 4-0 Ukraine
This weekend the Three Lions headed into a quarter final tie they were expected to win.
For once, they actually won a knockout game they were expected to win and they did so quite comfortably.
Gareth Southgate’s side were in control throughout the tie.
An early goal from Harry Kane settled the English nerves, an excellent Raheem Sterling assist was crucial.
Just after the start of the second half Harry Maguire headed home to double the lead.
Before long Harry Kane netted a header of his own to put the result beyond doubt.
Conserving legs, England brought on Jordan Henderson and the Reds’ skipper bagged his first England goal with a header from a corner half an hour from time.
Jordan Henderson first England goal v Ukraine
What a moment for the Reds’ skipper.
Jordan Henderson netted his first England goal in the game against Ukraine.
It was a fantastic header and plenty of credit has to go to the superlative cross from Mason Mount and the sloppy marking from the opposition.
The moment was a long time coming, particularly given the controversial warm up game moment which saw Hendo take a penalty from Dominic Calvert-Lewin which Hendo went on to miss.
Twitter reacts to goal
It’s safe to say that fans were made up for the skipper.
