Jordan Henderson now sends wordless reaction to Kieran Trippier after England’s World Cup exit
Trippier managed to make three appearances for Gareth Southgate’s side in Qatar before being replaced in the starting line-up by Kyle Walker.
The Newcastle man posed a real threat from dead-ball situations but only featured for the Three Lions during the group stages.
It was the opposite situation for Henderson, who forced his way into the side just in time for knockout stages.
England fell to another disappointing end to a major tournament on Saturday as they were beaten 2-1 by France in the quarter-finals.
Harry Kane’s missed penalty proved to be costly for Southgate’s men as he failed to convert his second spot-kick of the game with just six minutes left.
Now, after England’s heartbreaking defeat on Saturday, Henderson has reacted to Trippier’s latest post on Instagram.
Henderson sends message to Trippier
The Newcastle defender took to social media to express his pride in England’s performances in Qatar.
Trippier wrote: “So disappointing to go out at the Quarter final stage of the World Cup. I really feel last night we gave everything we could but it wasn’t meant to be.
“I’m so proud to be a part of this group of players, the bond we all have is so close and I have no doubt this group will be back again.
“A huge thank you to all the fans for your support, it really does mean the world to us.”
His fellow professionals flocked beneath the post to show their support, with the likes of Bukayo Saka and Kyle Walker-Peters replying with heart emojis.
Henderson also left the same emoji beneath the post as he reacted to Trippier’s heartfelt message about England’s World Cup exit.
Both Trippier and Henderson will be devastated to have missed out on the chance of glory in Qatar.
With both players now aged 32, it remains to be seen whether they will still be part of the England set-up in four years time.
But the pair should get one more chance at winning a major tournament with England as the next Euros is only 18-months away.
