Jordan Henderson hands England a huge boost as the Liverpool captain returns to full training ahead of final Euro 2020 warm-up with Romania

Jordan Henderson trained with the England squad ahead of Sunday’s final Euro 2020 warm-up friendly against Romania.

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions kicked-off their Euro preparations with a 1-0 win against fellow finalists Austria at the Riverside Stadium on Wednesday.

That friendly was set to be Liverpool skipper Henderson’s first appearance for club or country since undergoing groin surgery in February, only to miss out after complaining of discomfort on the morning of the match.

But the 30-year-old trained with the squad ahead of taking on Romania at Middlesbrough’s Rockliffe Park training ground on Saturday.

England skipper Harry Kane and Wednesday’s man-of-the-match Bukayo Saka did not train with the group, with the Football Association saying they were ‘following a personal training programme indoors to manage load’.

Harry Maguire was also doing the same on Saturday. The Manchester United captain joined up with the squad on Thursday and is recovering from an ankle ligament injury sustained at Aston Villa a month ago.
