Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson returned to training on Friday for his first proper football session since February. The 30-year-old is working his way back to full fitness after recovering from a groin surgery he had three months ago. Henderson missed the larger chunk of the second-half of the campaign, and the Liverpool star fears he could be omitted from England’s European Championship squad. According to The Sun, the midfielder has told close pals he is deeply concerned that his return to training may have come too late for him to make Gareth Southgate’s 26-man list.
The Three Lions boss will announce his squad for the tournament on Tuesday, and while Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reckons he has a chance, Southgate may not be keen on taking someone lacking match fitness and rhythm to the Euros when other options are available. England has two friendly games scheduled against Austria and Romania before their campaigns kicks off with Croatia on June 13. While Henderson’s quality on the pitch, huge experience and leadership in the dressing room would come in handy for the Three Lions, risking him does not make sense.
