'I love': Jude Bellingham shares what Jordan Henderson always does when he makes a mistake for England
Bellingham has been lighting up the World Cup for the Three Lions and is forming a brilliant partnership with Henderson in midfield.
Of course, the Borussia Dortmund star has been linked with a move to Anfield and Liverpool fans will love to see him forging a strong bond with their captain.
He set-up Henderson for his first ever World Cup goal as England beat Senegal 3-0 on Sunday. The pair also produced a memorable celebration where they squared up to each other.
But Bellingham has revealed that he loves playing alongside the Liverpool man due to his leadership qualities on the pitch.
Bellingham on Henderson
Speaking in the Diary Room chair on England’s Twitter, Bellingham says Henderson is always giving him advice after he makes a mistake during a game.
“He’s always the loudest player on the pitch, which I love – you always know you’re in a game,” Bellingham said.
“He doesn’t let you switch off for one second and I think the best thing about him is, he’ll give you a bit of detail to help you after you’ve done something negative.
“But he’s the first person if you’ve done something positive to let you know. His performance yesterday was incredible – ran the game, scored a key goal and it was a pleasure to play with him.”
Bellingham is clearly enjoying playing alongside Henderson right now and the Liverpool captain is proving his worth to Gareth Southgate’s side right now.
The 32-year-old’s inclusion in the starting line-up against Wales last week raised a few eyebrows. But he has now put in two commanding displays from central midfield.
Liverpool fans will be hoping Henderson and Bellingham continue to build a strong relationship on and off the pitch.
England are set to face their toughest test of the tournament so far on Saturday in Didier Deschamps’ France side.
Henderson will be hoping his display against Senegal has earned him a starting place in Southgate’s midfield, alongside Bellingham and Declan Rice.
