Pick of the players England’s Jordan Pickford made crucial saves to keep England in the game

Liverpool star Jordan Henderson has revealed what manager Jurgen Klopp has said about England's superb run to the semi-finals of the World Cup.

England's medical team are monitoring Henderson's situation and will manage it ahead of the match.

"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". We win as a team.

"And it will be the making of him and people will realise the player and the leader he is".

"It's down to us as a team". "They've got a lot of players from different areas, we are looking to stop them tomorrow night". The whole squad, even people who aren't here that have chipped in for us to be in this situation now. "The biggest thing for me is just continuing to win - and hopefully a few more wins over the next week".

Capello struggled to find a goalkeeper he trusted during his England reign, famously dropping former West Ham 'keeper Rob Green after he made a massive error in the opening game of the 2010 World Cup, and he has hailed the performances of the current number one Jordan Pickford.

"He has absolutely emptied the tank for both England and Liverpool this year".

"I'll obviously speak to the forwards and tell them what I think", Henderson said.

"I think he's had his fair share of criticism over the past year or so, but he's done so well over the last six months, really, especially after the start of the season".

"But he is not only a workhorse, he is a really good footballer as well so I am happy for him that he is getting a little bit of the light and [it is] well deserved".
