Heartbreaking news has just been announced for Liverpool legend, Jordan Henderson this evening πŸ’” He needs all our support. This is the worst news for him! 😒

Gareth Southgate faces significant pressure to form an England squad capable of winning a major tournament this summer. England narrowly missed victory in the last European Championship, falling to Italy in a penalty shootout in the final.

 

Previously, Southgate guided the team to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, but despite a promising start, they were ultimately defeated by Croatia.

 

To surpass these past performances, Southgate’s decisions on squad selection are crucial.

 

Gareth Southgate Excludes Jordan Henderson

 

The Athletic (subscription required) reports that Southgate has already made a notable decision prior to the official squad announcement, likely to generate extensive debate.

 

Jordan Henderson, known for his leadership and tenacity, has been excluded from the squad. His unsuccessful transfer to Saudi Arabia and Ajax’s disappointing seasonβ€”ending 35 points behind PSVβ€”contributed to this decision. Additionally, at 33 years old, his age played a role.

 

The Athletic also indicates that Curtis Jones, formerly Henderson’s teammate at Liverpool, is set for his first senior call-up, highlighting his impressive development over the past 12-18 months.
