JORDAN HENDERSON last night admitted he was desperate to extend his record-breaking unbeaten run and send England into the World Cup final, after completing his preparations with the help of a rubber chicken.

"We'll just have to assess the bodies".

The clash at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium marks England's first appearance in the last four of football's showpiece tournament since 1990.

"Playing in those big games is something special and it gives you confidence to know that you can perform at the very, very top against the best players in the world and I've just tried to continue that with England".

Henderson said his team would need to limit the impact of Croatia's Real Madrid playmaker Luka Modric to stand a chance of earning a place in the final.

There is no doubt that pride has been restored regardless of the outcome on Wednesday, when Henderson's selection is a good omen. 'Someone mentioned it the other day to us, ' Henderson said. We win as a team.

Former England defender Stuart Pearce believes Jordan Henderson is proving himself to be England's most natural leader rather than the man now wearing the armband, Harry Kane. It's down to what we do behind the scenes, what we work on in training, all the hard work to get here.

Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed the impact that Jordan Henderson has had for England at the Soccer World Cup to prove his critics wrong.

"I'm so pleased for him because he's a great person as well".
