Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson has revealed that Steven Gerrard has helped him to develop into a better player which in turn resulted in him being picked for England’s upcoming friendly matches.

The 23-year-old, who last featured for England in their penalty shootout loss against Italy in the quarter-final stage of the 2012 European Championship, was recalled by manager Roy Hodgson for the nation’s friendlies against Chile and Germany on 15th and 19th November respectively.


And Henderson admitted that it was great to be back again in the international fold and feels his team-mate and compatriot Gerrard has helped him to become a better player than he was the last time he donned an England shirt.

The midfielder further added that he wants to carry his Liverpool form, which has seen him play every minute of the Reds’ Premier League campaign thus far, onto the international arena.


"I think I have improved since last time”, he explained to Liverpool’s official site.

“Stevie helps me develop all the time in training and off the pitch. And when you play with him, you learn a lot.

"It's a massive boost to be picked. I'm delighted to go there, but I need to make sure I work hard and do what I've been doing with Liverpool."
