Sunderland striker Campbell hopes for better England impact than Liverpool's Henderson

Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell hopes for better in an England shirt than former teammate Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool midfielder Henderson earned a call-up last season while still with Sunderland, but struggled against France.

“I spoke to Jordan at the time, and like any young lad he was delighted to be in the senior squad when he was called up,” Campbell told the Sunday Sun.

“It was a tough game for him against France and it might not have gone brilliantly for him but it was still there, it was still an opportunity for him and an experience.

“It gives you that extra drive and experience to take into the future. I am sure Jordan (now with Liverpool) will play for England in the future.

“Holland will be a tough game for us on Wednesday, it’s just all about opportunities and experience.”
