Henderson To Captain England Against Spain As Injury Knocks Out Rooney

BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – England Midfielder Jordan Henderson will captain the side against Spain on Tuesday.

Rooney, the substantive Skipper featured last Friday’s World Cup qualifying win over Scotland, but missed training on Monday with a minor injury.

Speaking, the side interim Manager Gareth Southgate said: “I wouldn’t start Wayne in this game, so we’ll decide which route to go.’’

Henderson captained England in their 0-0 draw in Slovenia last month when Rooney was dropped to the bench.

“The key for me is I believe we have several leaders; “I don’t think we can have just one captain.

“Too much responsibility has been on Wayne – we need to share that. Once you have a team of those leaders you can have a lot of success’’, Southgate added.

In a related development, Tottenham striker Harry Kane will not feature against Spain, having been released from the squad over the weekend as he recovered from injury.

The 23-year-old player damaged an ankle against Sunderland on September 18, 2016 and only returned for 73 minutes of action against Arsenal on November 6, before joining the England squad.

He was an unused substitute for the 3-0 win over Scotland at Wembley.
