What central midfielder has performed better at the World Cup so far than Jordan Henderson?
Maybe Toni Kroos gets a nod for his wondergoal against Sweden, but Liverpool’s skipper has been far more consistent.
He was the best player on the pitch against Tunisia and marshalled the 6-1 victory over Panama yesterday.
Harry Kane wears the captain’s armband, but Henderson is the team’s real leader – in terms of the way he controls the game and vocalises his instructions.
Hendo covered over 10km in the blistering heat and completed 91% of his passes in Novgorod, which doesn’t surprise us in the slightest anymore.

We’re so glad Hendo is finally getting recognition internationally for his performances, but also that some sections of the Liverpool fanbase are being won round, too.
We now have Fabinho and Naby Keita to complement him centrally next season, along with the likes of Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the likely arrival of a top playmaker!
The options at Jurgen Klopp’s disposal are going to be incredible.
