England take on Croatia in a decisive Nations League clash on Sunday and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is out for revenge.
The Three Lions lost in the World Cup semi-finals to Croatia back in the summer, but will be looking to reach the final four of the Nations League should they win at Wembley on Sunday.
And Henderson is determined to end the international year on a high. "We will always have that defeat inside us — it was the World Cup semi-final. But since then we have come so far and we need to produce again on Sunday.
Then, after the game, hopefully we can see a lot of positive things and good things. It would get us to a semi-final again and that’s what our focus is on. But it will be tough because Croatia are a fantastic team.
We have reacted really well after the World Cup. It would have been easy to think, “Yeah, we had a decent time”, and go through the motions. But the first camp when we were back in September, we knew we had a lot to improve on if we want to go further in tournaments.
We want to get to finals and win competitions. We had a decent World Cup but we could have done better, so that has spurred us on. Since then we have been outstanding, especially against Spain (in October). Croatia is a huge opportunity for us.
There is a lot of things you can say about the year but our focus is to win; to get to the semi-finals."
