Dejan Lovren "proud" of Jordan Henderson for displays in England shirt

Dejan Lovren
Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren talks up the mental strength shown by Jordan Henderson in an England shirt following a gruelling campaign with Liverpool.

Dejan Lovren has heaped praise on Liverpool teammate Jordan Henderson for showing his leadership qualities at the World Cup with international side England.

The 28-year-old has been right at the heart of the Three Lions' promising early displays in Russia, skippering his side to a 2-1 win over Tunisia and a 6-1 thumping against Panama.

Henderson also played a key role in Liverpool's run to the Champions League final in 2017-18, and Lovren - himself looking forward to a last-16 tie with Croatia - believes that his club captain deserves plenty of credit.

"I'm definitely proud of Jordan Henderson, who is showing through all the season that he had a great season and even with the [mental] fatigue, he shows that he is a real leader to Liverpool and also to the English team," he is quoted as saying by the Reds' official website. "I hope we can meet later on [in the world Cup]."

England face Belgium in their final Group G outing on Thursday evening, while Croatia take on Iceland 24 hours beforehand.
