Liverpool star Jordan Henderson suffers injury during England training – report

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has picked up an ankle injury and is doubtful for England’s game against Switzerland, according to a report.

First it was Daniel Sturridge, and now it is Jordan Henderson – Liverpool players seem to be picking up injuries on international duty with England.

Striker Sturridge injured his thigh during a training session at St George's Park on Friday and was immediately ruled out of the Three Lions’ Euro 2016 Group E qualifier against Switzerland in Basel (click here to read more).

And now it appears that the 25-year-old’s Liverpool teammate Henderson will miss the encounter at St Jakob-Park on Monday with a right ankle problem.

According to The Guardian, the 24-year-old midfielder picked up the injury during a training match after turning away a tackle on Sunday.

Henderson was attended to by England’s medical team, but he could not continue playing and hobbled off.

The former Sunderland star will be monitored on Friday, and then coach Roy Hodgson will assess if he is fit to play against Switzerland.

Like the injury to Sturridge, who will reportedly be sidelined for at least three weeks, Henderson’s ankle problem will come as a blow to Liverpool.

The England international has established himself as a key player for the Reds, and his form was crucial in Brendan Rodgers’s side finishing second in the Premier League last season.
