Rodgers: Liverpool trio will shine for club and country

Monday 01 Sep 2014
Henderson, Sterling and Sturridge in action for England

Brendan Rodgers believes the future looks bright for Liverpool and England thanks to the talented trio of Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson.

The Reds recovered from Monday's defeat against Manchester City, with Sterling, Steven Gerrard and a wonderful solo effort from Alberto Moreno securing a 3-0 win at Tottenham.

The Liverpool boss was glowing in his praise for Sterling - and with Henderson and Sturridge also excelling, he predicted the Three Lions will benefit from the progress made by his England contingent.

"It was a wonderful moment of skill and he was fantastic for us again," he said.

"His tactical awareness is improving, and for a kid of 19 he's been great.

"I don't see him as a number ten, I think he's flexible. You've seen his flexibility and it was perfect against Spurs.

"It's important he has the intelligence to play these different positions and he's developing that well.

“They're going to do well for Roy Hodgson in the years to come”

"Him, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are playing at a leading club and showing really good tactical awareness and energy. 

"They're going to do well for Roy Hodgson in the years to come."

The trio joined up with England on Sunday evening ahead of Wednesday's friendly against Norway and the start of the European Championship campaign in Switzerland.

England take on Norway at Wembley on Wednesday 3 September - and the Liverpool trio will likely all be in action under the arch.
