The Liverpool captain could miss EURO 2020 (21)

England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed his concerns that midfielder Jordan Henderson could miss Euro 2020 due to his groin injury problem. The 30-year-old underwent surgery on the injury last month and was expelled for at least five weeks. But the Liverpool captain could be out much longer, questioning his availability for a rescheduled tournament, which is set to kick off in June. “In terms of promises, we can only say that Henderson himself is very optimistic about how the operation went and the prediction that the specialist gave him regarding what is possible,” Southgate said. “We recognize that with any injury of this kind, there is a guide and a time. But anything can happen along the way.”

“We know he’ll be close to the end of the season, and we’ll have to see how it goes. He’ll give himself every chance of being available. And, of course, we also know that he’s likely to be a bit short of match minutes in high-level games. There is a lot to consider, but at this point, it’s a decision that is weeks away”. Jordan Henderson has been a regular at The Three Lions for several years, playing a key role as England reached the 2018 World Cup semi-finals. Since the tournament in Russia, Henderson has continued to feature regularly for Southgate, earning 58 caps in his career. Although his absence would be a blow, England seem to have depth in central midfield to cope.

Calvin Phillips, Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham and Mason Mount are just a few of Southgate’s options for Henderson’s position.
