Henderson anticipates a “great” England-Germany match
When England plays Germany in the final 16 of Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium, Jordan Henderson expects a “special” moment.
When the final whistle blows on England’s Euro 2020 last-16 match against Germany, Jordan Henderson wants them to have “no regrets.”
The Three Lions will be rewarded for winning their group with a knockout match against their old rivals on Tuesday at Wembley Stadium, with a place in the quarter-finals on the line.
The draw has led fans to reminisce about previous matches between the teams, including the 1966 World Cup final and the 2010 World Cup last 16 match.
While Henderson recognises the “unique” aspect of the match, he wants England to do more than merely enjoy the moment.
Henderson: Germany-England “a unique game”
“It’s a wonderful game for the players, fans, everyone, and the neutrals watching,” he remarked. It’s a big game, and you want to be playing big games in these tournaments, so it’s quite exciting.
“Everyone will be looking forward to it, and as players, we must remain focused and ensure that we give our all on the field and have no regrets.”
“It’s thrilling; it’s a big game that we’re looking forward to.” We knew that whatever team we faced would be a significant test, and Germany would undoubtedly be one of them, so we must prepare thoroughly, be prepared for next week, and give our all.
“They’re still a great team.” Take a look at the players they’ve got; they’ve got quality all over the field. It’ll be a very difficult exam.
“In games like these, it’s not always about form; it’s about who puts in the best performance on the night; whoever puts in the best performance has a higher chance of winning, and we need to make sure we’re 100 percent ready, which I’m confident we will be.”
