Harry Redknapp says Dean Henderson's form cannot go unnoticed ahead of the World Cup.

The Cumbrian goalkeeper shone in his latest outing for Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Henderson made crucial saves in their 1-0 win over Liverpool including a stunning late stop to deny Virgil van Dijk.

And while the Whitehaven star is widely regarded as fourth in England’s current goalkeeping pecking order, Redknapp suggested Henderson deserves to be considered.

“To keep a clean sheet is one thing, but to do and get the three points against Liverpool is some achievement,” said Redknapp in his BetVictor column, where he named Henderson in his team of the week.

“Forest had luck on their side, but this man [Henderson] made some crucial stops, including one world-class save at the end to deny the Reds.

“He’s in excellent form ahead of the World Cup.”

Henderson, on loan at Forest from Manchester United, is expected to be in Gareth Southgate’s provisional 55-man squad for the Qatar tournament, which has so far not been made public.

But Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope and Aaron Ramsdale are favourites to get the three goalkeeping spots in the final squad.

Former Carlisle United academy player Henderson and Forest face their next big Premier League challenge on Sunday when they go to leaders Arsenal.

His club team-mate Ryan Yates, speaking in the Mail about his late save against Liverpool, said: “He was incredible. It’s top drawer and he knows that.

“I think he deserves it [an England call-up].”
