There is growing support rallying behind goalkeeper Dean Henderson to get his England national team call-up following his latest exploits in the Premier League, News & Star revealed.
Henderson has been tipped to be part of Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate's fold ahead of the next upcoming fixtures.
The 22-year-old kept his tenth clean sheet this season following Sheffield United's 1-0 victory over Norwich City over the weekend and it comes as no surprise that his manager and teammates are rooting for him.
Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder said: “We’ll all be very surprised if he’s not named in the upcoming England group and we’ll be surprised if he doesn’t get an opportunity in one of the next two games.”
Striker Billy Sharp added: “He [Henderson] loves keeping the ball out of the net and I'm certain he'll be England's No 1 soon - he has to be with his performances."
England are set to play against Italy and Denmark, however, with the growing concern of the Coronavirus, the games could be called off for safety precautions.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright also heaped praises on the keeper, saying: “He has only made two saves but those two saves are match-winning saves. That reaction there is magnificent.”
"It’s no secret I want to play for Man United and England. I’ve just got to keep working hard, stay grounded, keep setting my goals, and there’s no reason it can’t happen,” said Henderson.
