Jordan Henderson been named as England's player of the year for 2019, seeing off competition from team-mates Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane.

Henderson represented England on seven occasions during the year, reaching the landmark of 50 caps during a victory in Montenegro last March.

England's midfielder Jordan Henderson plays a ball during the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier Group A football match Czech Republic v England at the Sinobo Arena on 11 October 2019.

Both players also won the men's and women's Champions League titles with their respective clubs.

However, 29-year-old midfielder Henderson, who captained Liverpool to a Champions League triumph, before leading them to UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup glory this season, pipped Sterling to the post.

Lyon defender Bronze picks up the accolade for a second time having claimed the honour in 2015.

Bronze, meanwhile, topped the fans' poll from 2018 victor Ellen White, with Beth Mead third.

She played in 18 of England's 20 games a year ago, highlighted by a superb goal in the World Cup quarterfinal victory over Norway.

Henderson, who was named as one of the top three midfielders in Europe last season, also enjoyed triple glory for his club by leading Liverpool to the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.
