“The timelines are getting more difficult with each training session he might miss. But I’m being very realistic about what’s possible here. We feel he is such an important influence around the place.”

The England manager ended the line of questioning by refusing to rule out Henderson from playing in England's next match. 

“I don’t think it would be fair to rule him out of it but I think it’s clear to everyone how much football he’s missed.”
