Southgate delighted with leadership of Liverpool captain Henderson

England coach Gareth Southgate is delighted to count on the leadership of Liverpool captain Jordon Henderson.

Henderson will play his 50th England game tonight against Montenegro.

He said: “Jordan's qualities as a player have been under-appreciated.

“He is such an important player for us and has been for the last couple of managers. He has a winning mentality and good players make others play well.

“That is what you do when you are leader like he is. That is amongst his top qualities."
