Jordan Henderson

Jordan Henderson has become the latest Liverpool player to undergo tests on an injury after the England midfielder limped off in Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Belgium.

Henderson started the game but was withdrawn at half-time.

Tottenham’s Harry Winks was brought in as substitute.

England boss Gareth Southgate confirmed after the game that Henderson was substituted because of an injury.

“Jordan had a bit of tightness at half time and felt he couldn’t carry on,” Southgate revealed.

“We’ll have to assess him when we get back.”

The international break has not been kind to many teams.

From a fitness perspective, it’s hard to think that any team has had it harder than Liverpool.
