Henderson starred for England in their 5-0 thumping of Albania on Friday night and notched the Three Lions’ third goal of the game as he completed the full 90 minutes.
But the 31-year-old returned to his club in the aftermath of the victory for ‘further assessment of an injury’ and didn’t travel to San Marino for Monday night’s 10-0 win.
“With Hendo, [it happened] within the game,” admitted England boss Gareth Southgate after the Three Lions’ clash with Albania.
“There’s a precaution with both [Henderson and Jack Grealish]. We’ve scanned them. There is small injuries on the scans so we just hope that they’re not going to miss too much football from here on.
