Gareth Southgate says Jordan Henderson earned the right to replace Wayne Rooney as England captain after successfully stepping out of Steven Gerrard's shadow at Anfield.

The interim manager wants Rooney to remain as national skipper and squad figurehead despite dropping him for Tuesday's game in Slovenia, but it is Henderson who will lead the side out for the first time in Ljubljana.

The 26-year-old took the Liverpool armband from local hero Gerrard when the latter left the club in 2015 and has been impressive in the role.

And that was not lost on Southgate as he chose the midfielder ahead of other candidates such as Joe Hart and Gary Cahill.

"What stood out for me is that he has taken over as captain at a club where he has succeeded one of the most iconic English footballers of all time," said Southgate.

"That would have been a difficult challenge for him and he has matured from that. He has shown great leadership skills with his club.

Accrington Stanley 'milk' advert is back!

The LFC fan who starred in the Ian Rush mild advert that made Accrington Stanley a household name has recreated it 27 years on - but this time he’s drinking vodka.

The 1980s milk advert saw the young Scouse lad - played by eight-year-old Carl Rice - saying he's drinking milk because Ian Rush drinks it.

He then goes on to say that if he doesn't drink enough milk he'll only be good enough to play for Accrington Stanley, to which his friend replies:

Accrington Stanley! Who are they?

– Mild advert

The recreated version is exactly the same except the now 36-year-old Carl Rice is drinking vodka.

See the original advert below.
