Jordan Henderson has revealed that he is eyeing a spot in the England squad for the 2014 World Cup by putting in impressive performances for his nation in the run up to the competition.

The midfielder, who last featured for the Three Lions in their 2012 European Championship quarter-final defeat against Italy, was recalled by manager Roy Hodgson for the country’s friendly matches against Chile and Germany at Wembley Stadium on 15th and 19th November respectively.


And the Liverpool player is determined to impress Hodgson in the games prior to next year’s World Cup in view of being part of the England squad which will travel to Brazil.

The 23-year-old also believes that he has improved as a player but stated that he has no plans to take his foot off the pedal.


"I think it [a World Cup squad spot] is up for grabs for anyone. If you are doing well and your team is doing well people will be looking at you”, he explained to the FA’s official site.

“Now I have the chance to go and train and possibly play and I have to make sure I'm at it from the start.

"I definitely think I have improved over a few years so hopefully I can keep improving as time goes on.”

Henderson, who thus far has five senior caps for England to his name, has also represented the nation at various youth levels.
