England finally have a goalkeeper who saves - Capello

Henderson was doubtful for the semi-final clash with Croatia with a hamstring injury, but has since been passed fit to play on Wednesday night.

While few would regard Henderson as one of the top midfielders in the world, he clearly has some good influence on his teams - either that or he's an incredibly effective good luck charm.

The 28-year-old has been a key player for the Three Lions in Russian Federation, following a fine season for his club as they made the Champions League final.

At worldwide level, England's semi-final loss to Croatia was his 44th appearance for the Three Lions, having made his debut back in November 2010 against France.

The Liverpool skipper has earned praises from pundits for his role in England's impressive campaign so far at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"His time will come".

"And it will be the making of him and people will realise the player and the leader he is".

The England regular spoke highly of fellow midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic along with Liverpool team-mate Dejan Lovren.

"He ran out of steam a little bit in extra-time, but he's absolutely given everything for club and country and I think he's had a fantastic season".

Henderson has started all but one of England's games - the 1-0 defeat to Belgium when Southgate made eight changes to his starting XI in the final Group G match.

Henderson really started coming into his own in the second half of the season for Liverpool and helped them get into the final of the Champions League, after his performances in Russian Federation he's really cementing himself as a top central midfielder.

"I'm so pleased for him because he's a great person as well".
