England star Bellingham: So much rubbish spoken about Henderson

England star Jude Bellingham has hit out at critics of his teammate Jordan Henderson.

The two started in the World Cup round of 16 against Senegal on Sunday.

Bellingham set up the first goal of the game, scored by Henderson on the counter attack in the first half.

England went on to win the game 3-0 thanks to goals from Henderson, Harry Kane, and Bukayo Saka.

"Brilliant performance today, I've seen some of the rubbish about him (Henderson) playing," Bellingham told ITV after the game.

"It's ridiculous. He is so underrated technically and he's delivered again in a big game with a massive goal. It's time he got a bit of respect."
