JORDAN HENDERSON was ready to come on as a substitute on Tuesday evening, when Harry Kane sent Wembley into delirium by netting England’s second goal.

And in previously unseen footage Henderson, 31, was no different to the frenzied fans in the stands in that moment.

The Liverpool star had been preparing to come on for Declan Rice, no doubt to help protect the Three Lions’ slender lead.

But when Kane put the game to bed, Henderson was a picture of pure joy on the touchline.

Craning his neck and mouthing ‘go on’, he felt the moment of anticipation as Jack Grealish swung his cross in.

And as Kane converted, Hendo went bounding down the touchline, while screaming at the top of his lungs.

He quickly turned back, embracing manager Gareth Southgate in a passionate hug.

Henderson came on two minutes later in the 88th minute.

And England comfortably saw out the victory.

The result marked the end of a 55-year wait for an English victory over the Germans at a major tournament.

After the match, a jubilant Southgate told the BBC: “I am just so pleased. I was looking at the big screen and saw David Seaman up there.

“For my team-mates that played with me [at Euro 96] I can’t change that [his penalty miss against Germany in the semis] so it will always hurt, but what is lovely is we have given people another day to remember and now we have to do it in Rome.

“We have talked about bringing enjoyment to the nation and afternoons like this are what it is about.

“The players were immense right the way through the team and the fans were as well.

“It was as good an atmosphere I can remember at Wembley.”
