“I’m not going to take them unless they are fully fit”
Hodgson said of Arsenal’s Wilshere and Reds captain Henderson: “They are grateful as they both had fears. Jack was no doubt banging on Arsene Wenger’s door at the end of the season and saying, ‘Give me a game, let me play, I want to get in Roy’s squad’.
“Jordan must have worked incredibly hard because, when his unfortunate injury occurred, the medical advice we were given was that he probably wouldn’t make it.
“But I reiterate: I’m not going to take them unless they are fully fit.”
