Jordan Henderson gives England a huge boost as Liverpool captain returns to full training ahead of final Euro 2020 warm-up with Romania
Jordan Henderson trained with the England squad for the final warm-up of Sunday’s Euro 2020 against Romania.
Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions started Wednesday at the Riverside Stadium with a 1-0 win against fellow finalists Austria.
That friendly would be Liverpool captain Henderson’s first appearance for club or country since he underwent groin surgery in February, but he had to miss the game after complaining of discomfort on the morning of the game.

But the 30-year-old trained with the squad before taking on Romania at the Rockliffe Park training ground in Middlesbrough on Saturday.
England skipper Harry Kane and Wednesday’s man-of-the-match Bukayo Saka did not train with the group, with the Football Association saying they were “following within a personal training program to manage the load”.
Harry Maguire did the same on Saturday.
The Manchester United captain joined the squad on Thursday and is recovering from an ankle ligament injury he sustained at Aston Villa a month ago.
