He should, assuming Gareth Southgate was preparing to follow the selection protocols international managers usually adhere to during a friendly double-header, have been preparing to win his first senior cap. England Vs Croatia Tickets can be grabbed from our global event ticket sales market.
Instead, with England’s games against Italy and Denmark falling victim to the coronavirus crisis, Dean Henderson will spend tomorrow evening lounging on the couch at home rather than attempting to realize his ambition of becoming the country’s undisputed number one ahead of the next European Championships.
After embellishing his already excellent reputation with a series of assured displays in the Premier League this term, Henderson appeared to be a shoo-in for the squad Southgate was preparing to select for Friday’s meeting with the Azzurri and Tuesday’s scheduled visit of Age Hareide’s side.
The Everton goalkeeper’s usual deputy were expected to start the first of those two fixtures, senior figures at Manchester United and Sheffield United, where Henderson has spent the past two seasons on loan, suspected the 23-year-old would be given an opportunity to feature when the Danes arrived at Wembley for a match which, until COVID-19 intervened, formed a crucial part of the Three Lions’ build-up for UEFA’s now postponed tournament.

“Is he ready? I do not know, that is for others to decide Chris Wilder, the United manager, said after watching Henderson produce a superb double save during his team’s victory over Norwich City earlier this month.”
What I do know, though, is that he is moving in the right direction and doing everything, the absolute utmost, to be the best he can.”

After making his final appearance for the under-21’s last year, having helped United reach the Premier League earlier that summer, Henderson was called-up by Southgate for the first time in October after impressing at top-flight level.
Despite errors against Chelsea and Liverpool, the clean sheet he kept when Norwich traveled north on March 7 was his 10th of the campaign.
Four better than Pickford and with only Pope of Burnley keeping more, Henderson’s powers of recovery, organizational skills, and unshakeable self-belief have convinced some of the leading figures within the sport that his time has come.
I can imagine I have upset Liverpool supporters by failing to select Alisson Becker, Jamie Carragher, their former defender, recently admitted when naming his PL fantasy eleven.
He is the best in the world and in normal circumstances would be straight in. But I am basing my judgment on a season in which he has only played just over half of Liverpool’s games in all competitions due to injury.
