​Liverpool boss Henderson laughs off England pressure

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson does not believe there is excessive pressure on him at international level.

Henderson has 52 caps for his country, but is yet to score a goal while on international duty.

But the midfielder laughed off any criticism of his goal-shy national performances, saying he was saving his first goal for the right occasion.

Henderson said to reporters: "I'm keeping it for a big occasion. I've probably had some chances and of course it will be nice to score. But, at the same time, I just concentrate on winning. If I don't score but we win then I'm happy.

"If we win every game and I don't score for the rest of my career, then I'd be more than happy.

"It's all about winning, but it would be nice to score at some point."
