Jordan Henderson Get’s First Half Goal

Jordan Henderson has scored and got an assist in the first half of England’s match at home to Albania in the World Cup Qualifiers.

England cruise to a 5-0 lead at half-time with the Liverpool midfielder playing a key part for the home side.

The Liverpool captain set up Tottenham’s Harry Kane for England’s second goal in the 18th minute. He played a lovely 1-2 with Manchester City’s Phil Foden before crossing perfectly for Kane.

Henderson then himself went on to score the third goal. Another beautiful 1-2, this time with Harry Kane and a lovely finish from the Liverpool man.

The other scorers in England’s first half whitewash are Manchester United’s captain Harry Maguire and Harry Kane, who has a hat trick already to his name.

England are currently playing their first of two Qualifiers in the international break with the other match coming Monday night away to San Marino.

Another win tonight keeps Engaland 3 points clear of Poland as Poland are also cruising to an easy win, being 3-1 up at half-time themselves.

Will the Liverpool captain add more in the second half? With the result is already been decided, will he get the rest his club would want him to?

He was substituted in the 28th minute and fears appeared to be allayed when Senegal manager Aliou Cisse gave an update after the game on Mane’s condition suggesting that he was subbed merely as a precaution.

According to a report Liverpool striker Sadio Mane is awaiting the results of x-rays after a nasty clash in Senegal’s 1-1 draw with Togo on Thursday.

Mane went for a header after a cross into the Togo penalty area when he collided with a defender.
