Liverpool's England U21 skipper Jordan Henderson was pleased for Jonjo Shelvey after his performance against Azerbaijan.

Henderson was not surprised by Shelvey’s performance, after he has put in some impressive displays for Brendan Rodgers' Reds during the start of this campaign.

“Jonjo was very good,” beamed Henderson to theFA.com. “He played just off the striker and got on the ball a lot. He made some good passes and played a big part in both of the goals, setting up the first and scoring near the end.

“I thought he was brilliant. He’s been like that throughout pre-season at Liverpool, so I hope he can carry on like that.”
