[World Cup] Key Player Review: England – Jordan Henderson

He might be a peculiar suggestion for this status, considering he’s not even guaranteed to be in the starting XI, but few other players could have such a transformative impact upon Roy Hodgson’s side.

Henderson is fresh from a superb campaign at Liverpool (where it can be argued his suspension late in the season was a major reason they failed to win the title), providing relentless bursts to carry the ball forward from midfield and to connect the midfield and attack.

He developed a fine relationship with Steven Gerrard, set to replicate his Liverpool-style holding role for the national side, and therefore seems the perfect man to ensure England don’t suffer from their age-old problem—being overrun in midfield.
