    Gareth Southgate has no plans to travel to Saudi Arabia to watch Jordan Henderson in person ahead of England's next games against Australia and Italy in October.

    Henderson was part of Southgate's squad for the tournament. Matches between Ukraine and Scotland, the start and full 90 minutes of the game against Ukraine and the match in Glasgow on the bench.

    The midfielder was widely criticized for his move to Al Ettifaq this summer, although Southgate praised Henderson's performance against Ukraine and said his “score” was the highest of his England career while playing in Poland.
