Jordan Henderson has been named as the 2019 BT England Men’s Player of the Year.

The Liverpool captain saw off competition from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane to claim the accolade.

Henderson represented England on seven occasions during the year, reaching the landmark of 50 caps during a victory in Montenegro last March.

The 29-year-old also helped the Three Lions secure qualification for UEFA Euro 2020 and a third-place finish at the UEFA Nations League.

At club level, Henderson lifted three trophies during 2019 as the Reds claimed the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

Former Liverpool FC Women midfielder Lucy Bronze, now of Olympique Lyonnais, was named as England’s Women’s Player of the Year.
