​Liverpool captain Henderson positive on Benfica draw: Getting through most important thing

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson insisted that progressing into the Champions League semi-finals is what matters.

The Reds played out a 3-3 draw at home against Benfica on Wednesday, in the second leg of their quarter-final clash.

Already 3-1 up from the away leg, Liverpool are comfortably through to the semis, where they will take on Villarreal.

Henderson told BT Sport post-match: "I think we want to do better overall, but at the same time I felt as though we started the game really well.

"[In the] first half we could have scored one or two more goals. It was comfortable, but I think we'll be disappointed in the goals that we conceded.

"There's still plenty of stuff we can be better at, but overall, we knew it was going to be tough. At 3-1 it is never over, we wanted to give it everything.

"[There was] a lot of changes with fresh legs, but we're through to the next round which is the most important thing."
