The Liverpool midfielder's influence is growing both for his club, and for the national side.
Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has been urged to add more goals to his game this season by his club manager Brendan Rodgers.
The 24-year-old has said he would like to get in amongst the goals a lot more as well, and he made a telling contribution at the weekend for his club as he set up teammate Adam Lallana for his first goal for the club, and managed to get the winner in order to get the Reds back to winning ways after a stuttering start to their campaign.
Henderson continued his goalscoring form in an England training session with a fine left-footed strike past Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, after a one-two with Liverpool club-mate Raheem Sterling, which even drew applause from England captain Wayne Rooney.
Liverpool's vice-captain has yet to get his first goal for his country but will feel he has a perfect opportunity during this break as England take on European minnows San Marino in qualification for the European Championships in France in 2016 at Wembley.
Henderson is said to be close to agreeing a new contract with Liverpool after his growing influence on his club over the years, and it seems as though his influence is also growing for the national side.
