Henderson the only England midfielder who should be guaranteed Euro 2020 starting berth - Murphy

Danny Murphy claims that Liverpool's Jordan Henderson is the only midfielder who should be guaranteed a place in Gareth Southgate's England line-up at next summer's European Championship.

The Three Lions booked their place in the continental tournament after beating Montenegro 7-0 at Wembley on Thursday night.

Southgate's men followed up that result with a comfortable 4-0 win away to Kosovo on Sunday, ensuring they finished top of Group A ahead of the Czech Republic in the process.
