England midfielder Jordan Henderson says facing Germany in the European Championship last 16 will be a “special game” and is an “exciting” prospect.

It evokes memories of the Euro 96 semi-final which Germany won on penalties at the home of English football.

“It will be a very tough test. We need to stay focused and have no regrets.” Henderson said.

“It’s a special game for the players, for the fans – it’s a big game and that’s what you want to be playing in at these tournaments. It will be a very tough test.”

Henderson featured for the first time in the tournament on Tuesday, replacing Declan Rice at half-time in the 1-0 win against the Czech Republic which ensured England finished top of Group D.

Germany twice came from behind against Hungary on Wednesday to progress as Group F runners-up and set up the last-16 tie against Gareth Southgate’s side.

“They’re still a very good side,” Henderson said.

“They have quality all over the pitch. We need to prepare well and give everything.”
