Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dean Henderson has been part of something unbelievable during England training. A YouTube video has claimed that the England trio of Henderson, Nick Pope and Aaron Ramsdale made 400 saves between them in one training session.
The latest video from the England base shows the three stoppers being put through their paces. Martyn Margetson is Gareth Southgate’s trusted goalkeeping guru and he is clearly leaving no stone unturned in his quest to make them better.
Henderson has enjoyed a brilliant start to life at Forest. He’s showcased that there is life after Brice Samba, producing several moments of magic in Steve Cooper’s team and arguably he’s unfortunate to just have one clean sheet to his name.
Henderson has also saved penalties from two of his England teammates. Declan Rice and Harry Kane have both missed spot-kicks on Trentside this season and there is likely to be more to come from Henderson as the season progresses.
The Reds languish in 19th place in the Premier League at the moment. They have claimed just four points from their opening seven matches in the top flight and they desperately need to start picking up wins in the division.
Henderson part of unbelievable England training
Some of the drills that Margetson has been putting Henderson through can only benefit him. It seems a happy place to be in the England dressing room and all of the goalkeepers can be seen encouraging each other.
The 25-year-old hasn’t been called into an England squad since Euro 2020 which took place in the summer of 2021. He was forced to withdraw from that due to injury and not playing for Manchester United last season hampered him.
Now, he knows he will play every game at Forest as long as he stays fit. That should do his confidence the world of good and he will hope to guide the Reds away from danger and into a safer position in the Premier League table.
Forest are in safe hands with Henderson between the posts. The challenge for him is to continue playing well and hopefully keep his place with England for the World Cup.
