Liverpool's Henderson praises England U21 pals after win in Serbia

Liverpool's England U21 Jordan Henderson praised teammates for keeping their heads during victory in Serbia.

Henderson praised his players for their reaction to the alleged racist abuse suffered in Serbia this evening and called on UEFA to take the appropriate action.

Henderson said on thefa.com: "Everyone is delighted with the result and going to the Euros, but what happened tonight wasn't nice and is not called for in football.

"There was a lot of racist abuse out there from the stands and a lot going on after the game, which is hard to take for the players."

He added "The players coped with the abuse really well. It's not nice. They kept their heads and were professional. I thought our players were brilliant and conducted themselves very well.

"The players completely condemn what happened.

"There were also stones, coins and seats getting thrown at us. I didn't understand why Danny Rose was sent off at the end - I didn't see he did anything wrong, other than get abused.

"UEFA must deal with this in the right way."
