@alpinetrail: Jordan, what does it mean to captain England at Under-21 level? What’s it like being part of the squad?
It is an honour to captain your country at any level. We have a really good squad and we are all looking forward to the game tomorrow
@shivamLM: Who is better: Maradona or Messi?
They are both great players but I’d have to say Messi as I’ve seen him play a lot more
@Ichi_insomnia: Do you think moving to Liverpool has enhanced your chances of participating at the European Championship?
I think I just need to concentrate playing for LFC and qualifying for the U21s. But I would love to play in the Euros next year.
@callummc1: Are you going to join Twitter yourself?
No I won’t be joining Twitter, I’m finding it hard enough doing this, it’s taking me ages to reply!
@Kane_LFC: Who is your best friend at Liverpool?
I probably get on with Andy and Stewy the most, probably because they’re from the north-east as well.
@James_Isherwood: What are you most excited about being a footballer in the next five years?
I’m excited to be playing for Liverpool hopefully for many years and just want to keep improving every day.
@Ethanlamptey97: How’s your time at Liverpool been so far?
I have really enjoyed my time at Liverpool. Everyone has been brilliant and I’m sure the is even more to come.
@markill: Are you concenred at your first team chances given the amount of competition for centre-midfield places in the LFC squad?
I’m not concerned cos that’s part of being a footballer. It’s how u respond to set-backs. I’ll make sure I work hard always.
@reds4us: Do you prefer playing on the wing or central?
I prefer centre but I’m always happy to play where the manager says and just want to be playing football
@XShaunaCooperX: What’s your favourite sport apart from football?
It was have to be either tennis or basketball
@sabrinaxx: Have you been watching X Factor? And will you be voting for Nu Vibe?
Yeah, I’ve been watching it, of course I will be voting Nu Vibe. I hope you’re voting for them too.
@AppleLoveMeow: Hello Jordan, do you play a game? FIFA or PES2012 like the others?
I’ve just started playing FIFA 12 with the lads and unbeaten on this trip #Kells #Josh #Flano #Waggy
@praline_tw: Who is the most hilarious in the dressing room of England U21s?
It’s got to be Henri Lansbury. He’s always joking around but he is a great lad and is playing really well at the minute.
@AnthiliaS: Have you ever played a match with Andy Carroll before you became a professional footballer?
Yeah, when we were younger we played together once or twice for Sunderland.
Samuel Joseph Ball: What is your favourite thing to do outside of football?
Whenever we have a bit of time off, I always like to go back home to spend time with my family and see friends. I was back there at the weekend before meeting up with England and went for some food at Hana Hana. After we went back to my mates to watch the Tottenham-Arsenal game
Jacob Sid Greer: How much did you enjoy your loan spell at Coventry?
I loved my time at Coventry, the fans were great and it was a good place to get first team experience. I loved scoring against Norwich too!
Olly West: To date, who is the most accomplished player you have played with or against?
Playing with is Stevie Gerrard in training and on Saturday, he's such a talented player and one I can hopefully learn a lot from. Against was probably Thiago for Spain at the Euros in the summer. He was very good.
