England stars Jude Bellingham and Jordan Henderson walked away from an interview at the World Cup after the Liverpool midfielder was asked whether the Borussia Dortmund star could be coming to Anfield this summer. Bellingham, who has been one of the stars of the Qatar tournament, has been tipped to sign for Jurgen Klopp’s side when he leaves Dortmund.
Bellingham and Henderson were both named in Gareth Southgate’s starting line-up for the Three Lions’ World Cup showdown with Senegal on Sunday night. And the teenage sensation teed his experienced team-mate up for the first goal seven minutes before the interval.
Harry Kane added a second goal at the end of the first half before Bukayo Saka put the game to bed just before the hour mark.
Bellingham and Henderson were in high demand after the encounter as they carried out their media duties. And one reporter asked the latter for his opinion on the youngster.

Bellingham burst onto the scene after becoming a regular in the Championship with Birmingham as a 16-year-old during the 2019/20 campaign, before securing a £30million move to Germany at the end of that season.
During his time at Signal Iduna Park, the ace has pulled on the Dortmund shirt 112 times, with 21 of those appearances coming in the Champions League. And he won the German Cup in 2021 before linking up with England for Euro 2020.
Bellingham has become a key player in the England midfield under Southgate and has started all four of his side’s matches in Qatar. He scored the Three Lions’ first goal of the tournament when he headed in the opener against Iran. And he is set to line-up alongside Henderson once again when England go head-to-head with France in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
