Jordan Henderson is ready to step into the England breach ... even if he knows the gaping hole left by Steven Gerrard's retirement from internationals can never truly be filled.The 24-year-old Liverpool midfielder suddenly finds himself likely to be the most senior midfielder – and natural leader – in Roy Hodgson's new-look squad, following his teammate's decision to declare at 114 caps. With Frank Lampard also likely to follow Gerrard into retirement after choosing a new life in America with recently created MLS side New York City, Henderson is set to go from rookie to role model for the exciting crop of English kids who are ready to emerge. If it is Henderson, then he is ready for the role.The same now could be said for England, because without Gerrard they will need that energy and confidence to offer the support required to bring the best out of emerging stars such as Barkley, Raheem Sterling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and even Adam Lallana.
