England Under-21 captain Jordan Henderson believes that the loss of midfielder Jack Rodwell will not hamper the national side's chances of qualifying for the European Championship finals tonight.

England Under-21 midfielder Jordan Henderson is confident that he and his teammates will be able to qualify for the European Championship finals tonight.

Stuart Pearce's men take on Serbia this evening but they will have to compete without Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell, who was forced to withdraw from the squad with a hamstring injury.

"We've enough depth in the squad to manage and cope with the injuries," said Henderson. "When Jason Lowe came on for Jack at Norwich, he did really well. Everybody can play their part, and we're just looking forward to the match now.

"We know this will be yet another tough game. They are at home, and playing in front of a big crowd, so they'll be right up for it. We have to make sure we match them and that we're up for it just as much."

Norwich City goalkeeper Declan Rudd and Liverpool full-back Jack Robinson have also been added to the injury list ahead of this evening's clash.
