England coach Roy Hodgson is delighted with the form of Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson.

Henderson goes into today's Anfield match against Kop boss Brendan Rodgers' former club Swansea, having received a timely boost from Hodgson.

The England boss said: "It's quite nice to know that there are some youngsters who will be putting the older guard under pressure.

"Not least in that is Jordan, who has kicked on enormously in the last few months."
