Henderson hails England’s Euro 2020 quarter-final win over Ukraine as “outstanding” but warns against getting ahead of themselves. The Liverpool midfielder scored his first senior goal in what was his 62nd cap in a 4-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. England faces Denmark in the semi-final on Wednesday, having secured back-to-back last four appearances in major tournaments for the first time in years.
WHAT HAS BEEN SAID?
“I THOUGHT THE FELLOWS WERE REMARKABLE, IN THIS WAY, NO DOUBT, BY AND LARGE, AN INCREDIBLE EVENING,”
the midfielder, who fell off the seat for Declan Rice in the subsequent half, disclosed to Sky Sports News. “You know, we haven’t accomplished, we need to rapidly turn center, and use it in a positive way, to Wednesday and an extreme adversary against Denmark.
“We have energy and we’re feeling certain and yet, we must give Denmark respect in light of the fact that they’re an awesome group. We played them in the not-so-distant past and we realize how troublesome that is destined to be.
TASTEFUL ENGLAND KEEP IT CLEAN
Henderson’s appearance not long before the hour mark, with his country three objectives to the positive qualities in Rome, guaranteed indispensable additional minutes for the Reds man following a delayed injury lay-off across the second 50% of the period, yet in addition, eliminating the danger of suspension for a key man.
Heading into the game, Rice – close by Maguire, individual midfielder Kalvin Phillips, and the sidelined Phil Foden – were all conveying yellow cards, implying that a further reserving would have administered them out of any imminent semi-last conflict.
Fears that a blunt Ukraine execution could demonstrate niggly were unwarranted, in no little part because of Kane giving England an early lead which reshaped the elements of the match, yet Southgate will without a doubt be satisfied that he will actually want to call upon a full unexpected for the conflict with Kasper Hjulmand’s Denmark at Wembley.
