Liverpool midfielder Henderson targeting World Cup

Jordan Henderson is hoping he can continue his brilliant recent form with Liverpool in order to force his way into England's World Cup squad.

The 23-year old midfielder has emerged as a key player in the Reds' climb up the Premier League table this season and he is looking to maintain that quality as the campaign progresses.

Henderson started in England's 1-0 friendly win over Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night and admits he is now gunning for a spot in Roy Hodgson's 23-man squad for Brazil.

"I'm playing with a lot of confidence and I'm loving playing football at the minute," Henderson told the Liverpool Echo.

"Things have been going well for Liverpool and to get another call up for England gave me a boost as well. Hopefully I can keep going for the rest of the season.

"It would mean everything to me to go to the World Cup and represent my country.

"First and foremost, I need to do a job for Liverpool. I'll give my all between now and the end of the season. If I do that then I will have a good chance."

Henderson has started all 28 league games for the Reds this season, forming a strong partnership with captain Steven Gerrard in the centre of midfield.
