Jordan Henderson to think twice about taking his family to the World Cup



England Training Session and Media Day – St. George’s Park – Tuesday September 20th

Jordan Henderson admits his recent experiences with crowd and stadium problems made him think twice about taking his family to the World Cup in Qatar.

The 32-year-old was on the bench as England’s Euro 2020 final loss to Italy was overshadowed by unrest from supporters at the gates of Wembley Stadium.

He then captained Liverpool in their loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final last season, a match which was delayed as spectators were unable to enter the Stade de France, leading to the local police to use tear gas and pepper spray on the fans and finally to an in-depth investigation commissioned by UEFA.
