Man Utd loanee Henderson admits being 'behind' in battle for England spot

Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson has admitted he is still behind in the England pecking order.

Henderson left United for Nottingham Forest this summer and has started all seven of their Premier League games.

However, Henderson knows he still has a lot of work to do to make England's World Cup amid competition from Aaron Ramsdale, Jordan Pickford and Nick Pope.

"I think I'm behind at the minute," said Henderson.

"Obviously, last season not playing so much and the other lads have done unbelievably well. I knew the best chance to do that was to come out and play football and being in Gareth Southgate's eye and hopefully leaving a good impression."

Henderson continued: "The talent in the group is something you really want to be part of. I honestly think England could win something big, soon. We obviously got close and are going to get closer. The players coming through just seem to be better."
