Premier League winner Jordan Henderson has declared himself fully fit to face when England face Germany in the crucial last 16 of the Euro 2020 on Tuesday evening.
The 31-year-old Liverpool midfielder came on at half-time during Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Czech Republic to play his first competitive football match since February 20, where he sustains a groin injury against city rival Everton early in the year.
Henderson told the press via Daily Mail ahead of next Tuesday last 16 encounters against Joachim Low’s men at Wembley.
He said: “The toughest part of being an athlete is dealing with injuries. It wasn’t easy. I’m in a pretty good place. It was great to get on the pitch finally in a competitive game and get 45 minutes under my belt.
“I feel really positive, and hopefully, I can keep contributing to the team.
The winner of Tuesday’s encounter at Wembley will advance through to the quarter-finals where they’ll meet either Sweden or Ukraine in Rome on 3 July.
