Jordan Replaces Lampard At Euros

Liverpool look set to have more players in England's Euro 2012 squad than any other club after Jordan Henderson was called to replace the injured Frank Lampard.

England U21 skipper Henderson had been on stand-by but a thigh strain suffered in training by Lampard means he should now join Glen Johnson, Steven Gerrard, Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll in Roy Hodgson's party.

A statement on the FA website read: "Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will be called into the squad - subject to agreement from UEFA's medical team."

Manchester United has the second biggest representation in the squad with four players.

England play Belgium in their final warm up this weekend before beginning their Euro campaign versus France on June 11.
