Jordan Henderson has finally scored his first goal for England during this evening’s Euro 2020 clash with Ukraine and the celebrations were so wholesome.
England found themselves 3-0 up early in the second half and Gareth Southgate brought Henderson on for Declan Rice.
Henderson, who hit the headlines for missing a penalty in a friendly against Romania last month, found himself on the end of a Mason Mount corner.
The Liverpool man firmly headed home past Heorhiy Bushchan to make it 4-0 and you can see what it meant to him.
It’s been a tough old season for Jordan Henderson… but what a reward!
His first goal for England!

Gareth Southgate’s side took the lead inside four minutes after Harry Kane fired home from a lovely Raheem Sterling ball.
England doubled their lead a minute into the second half with Harry Maguire heading home a Luke Shaw cross.
Kane grabbed his second 50 minutes in to take his summer tally to three goals after failing to have a shot on target in the first two games.
Henderson’s header looks to have emphatically sealed victory ahead of a clash with Denmark on Wednesday.
