Jude Bellingham speaks to the “rubbish” he’s overheard about Jordan Henderson of England

December 5, 2022

Jude Bellingham, a midfielder for England, said it was “about time” that Jordan Henderson’s other teammate started receiving the rescpect he deserves.


The opening goal for England came from Liverpool star Henderson as they defeated Senegal 3-0 to go to the World Cup quarterfinals. Bellingham, who broke free down the left and slipped in a low cross to set up the first goal, also contributed to Harry Kane’s second goal for England.


With his second-half goal, Buyako Saka effectively ended the contest and set up a semifinal matchup with the current World Cup champions, France. Kylian Mbappe scored twice to climb ahead of the competition’s scoring leaders and give Didier Deschamps’ team a comfortable 3-1 victory over Poland.


After the game, Bellingham remarked of his fellow midfielder, “I’ve seen some of the crap spoken about him; it’s crazy – he’s so underappreciated technically.” “It’s about time he received some recognition,”


Henderson’s goal was just his third for England, but it was his second in a big competition. He also scored as Southgate’s squad defeated Ukraine in the quarterfinals of Euro 2020 by scoring four goals in a row.


Bellingham and Henderson’s link-up play enthused Liverpool supporters. Many people would be glad to see the pair’s England-level friendship reproduced at the club level. The young player from Borussia Dortmund has previously been linked with a move to Anfield.


Henderson pleased many people, including Bellingham, who thought he was competing with Mason Mount for the starting position against Senegal. The 2014 World Cup participant for England, Adam Lallana, also highlighted the 32-year-advantages. old’s


Before England triumphed over Wales, Henderson’s old Liverpool teammate Lallana wrote in The Times. “I detailed earlier in the tournament exactly what Mount contributes to a team, but the way the midfield three of Henderson, Jude Bellingham, and Declan Rice complemented each other in the victory over Wales was eye-catching.


“It screamed solidity and ferocity. There was an awfulness to England, a toughness that made them challenging to play against. They were constantly at Wales, harrying and annoy[ing] whoever was on the ball.


Given Henderson’s participation in the starting XI, it shouldn’t be a surprise that there is some resemblance to how Liverpool was when Jurgen Klopp first joined the team.


Since he only played in that style seven years ago and it has been so successful for him professionally, he will undoubtedly carry some of that football over to his time playing for England.
