Henderson happy to play anywhere but prefers the centre

LIVERPOOL midfielder Jordan Henderson is away on international duty with the England Under 21s but he took a bit of time out to answer some questions on Twitter on behalf of The FA.

Signed from Sunderland in the summer, Henderson said he prefers playing in the middle, rather than the wing, because that’s what he feels he’s best at – but he made it clear that he’s just happy to be picked and will player wherever he’s put.

“Hendo” explained during the filming of his Twitter Q&A why he won’t be getting his own account any time soon. It’s important to note that he doesn’t have his own Twitter account and any accounts you might see on Twitter claiming to be his are fake and shouldn’t be followed. Also victims of fake accounts on Twitter are the two Reds stars Henderson said he gets on best with – Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll, neither of whom currently use the social networking site.

Stuart Pearce’s youngsters play a Euro 2013 qualifier against Iceland in Rekjavik tonight and then face Norway in Drammen on Monday. Joining Henderson in the squad are his Liverpool team mates Jonjo Shelvey (currently on loan to Blackpool) and right-backs Martin Kelly and Jon Flanagan.

Amongst the other questions Jordan was asked were favourite cheese, PES or FIFA and Maradona or Messi.

Iceland U21s v England U21s is live on ESPN in the UK and Ireland this evening.
