United's goalkeeping coach Darren Ward says Dean Henderson fully deserves his first senior call-up to the England squad.

The Manchester United loanee was added to Gareth Southgate's group on Tuesday evening after Aston Villa number one Tom Heaton pulled out of the squad to face Czech Republic and Bulgaria and Ward wasn't surprised.

As a former international goalkeeper himself, the 45-year-old believes Henderson has all the attributes both physically and mentality to perform on the biggest of stages.

The 22-year-old has become a fans favourite at Bramall Lane and Ward thinks there is even more to come from the stopper who he sees developing with every game.
