England midfielder Jordan Henderson has admitted that he was disappointed to only come away from last night’s game against Spain with a draw, The Mirror can report.
I thought we worked really hard so to concede two goals so late on is really disappointing. We gave everything. We created chances and looked dangerous on the counter, they didn’t create many chances.
Henderson took on the responsibility of being the captain in the 2-2 draw against Julen Lopetegui’s men and had yet another good game. The Liverpool man has been turning in some impressive displays at both club and international level and it looks as though he’s cemented his place in the starting line-up for England.
The former Sunderland man also had a big part to play in his side’s second of the night, with his delicately lofted cross over to the back post being converted by an excellent diving header from Leicester striker Jamie Vardy.
We matched Spain in terms of work rate and effort, there were a lot of good things. But to reflect on that so soon after conceding those goals is hard.
Two late goals for Spain from Iago Aspas and Isco respectively saw England lose a 2-0 lead at Wembley, but the performance from Henderson’s side was certainly one to remember and one that a lot of encouragement can be taken from.
