Liverpool’s midfielder Jordan Henderson stepped up to the plate and took a penalty in the shootout against Colombia on Tuesday night.

He was the only England player to miss in the dramatic end to a hostile game, but in the end it didn’t matter as England went on to win 4-3 and progress through to the quarter-finals.

And Liverpool fans rallied round their man after he showed the courage to take a penalty, and put in a heroic performance over the 120 minutes.

Here are the best reactions from Liverpool fans after the dramatic game in Russia:

One fan summed up what a lot of Liverpool fans were thinking when he pointed out Henderson’s reaction to Eric Dier’s winning penalty was to sink to his knees, and that he put his heart and soul into the team.

Another said he was England’s best player, despite the penalty miss, while another said he showed strength to step up and take a penalty.

We’d imagine Liverpool fans will be hoping they don’t have to endure another penalty shootout however, as Henderson moves on with his side to face Sweden on Saturday afternoon in their first quarter-final World Cup tie since 2006.
