'We want to compete with the very best teams' - Henderson sets out England vision after Belgium win

Jordan Henderson says England want to compete “with the very best teams” after the Three Lions beat the world’s number one ranked side Belgium at Wembley on Sunday.

Goals from Marcus Rashford and Mason Mount earned a 2-1 victory for Gareth Southgate’s side after Romelu Lukaku’s early penalty put Belgium ahead, the Red Devils' first defeat for nearly two years.

The win means England have now won 20 of their last 21 competitive home games, with the three points putting them top of their Nations League group.
