Former Liverpool striker Collymore was not impressed with the performance of Henderson for the Three Lions.

“Only 2 players disappointed me against Slovakia if I’m being honest,” Collymore wrote on

“Firstly Jack Wilshere who still looks woefully short of sharpness and Jordan Henderson, who’s energy I admire in a Liverpool or England shirt but for me I’m afraid isn’t a good enough player for either.

“Neither would be in my plans for first 11 duty moving forward in this tournament.”
