Andrew Robertson says Liverpool have a top player in their ranks who gets 'angry on the pitch'
Liverpool ace Andrew Robertson has waxed lyrical about Reds teammate Jordan Henderson ahead of England clashing with Scotland at Euro 2020.
The Anfield left-back is set to captain his nation at this summer’s rescheduled European championships.
Robertson has played a big role in helping Scotland qualify for their first major tournament since the 1998 World Cup.
Steve Clarke’s charges kick off their Group D campaign against Czech Republic before facing England and then Croatia.
Speaking to PLZ Soccer, Robertson was asked which England opponent he’s worried about the most.
“It’s Henderson for me unfortunately,” he replied.
“My captain, you know, he can get quite angry on the pitch when I’m on his team, so hopefully he doesn’t get angry at me when I’m on the opposite team!
“But no, look, they’re full of quality. Obviously I know Hendo and I know Trent, hopefully he’ll be in the squad, and I know those two close and personally, so I know how good they are.”
June 18 promises to be an exciting day for the country, with the two home nations locking horns at Wembley.
Henderson has endured a difficult season amid injuries, while Robertson has run himself into the ground and understandably suffered a drop in form this year.
Hopefully they’ll both be back to their best in the coming weeks and shine for their respective nations.
