Sunderland winger Jordan Henderson has revealed that he was over the moon after he was called up to the England squad for Wednesday’s friendly against France to be played at Wembley.
The 20-year old midfielder also said that he was only concentrating on Sunday’s clash with Chelsea when he found out he may be in the squad and was delighted to hear the good news which made the shock victory over the league leaders so much sweeter.
“I was over the moon when I found out,” Henderson said.
“There was a lot of speculation that I would be in the squad but in my mind I was just concentrating on Chelsea.
“That was a brilliant result and with the call-up it’s been a really great week for me. It’s a great opportunity for me and some of the younger lads to show what we can do.”
