Henderson strike sends Liverpool through

FIFA - Midfielder Jordan Henderson's maiden UEFA Europa League goal saw Liverpool progress to the last 32 as Group A winners with a 1-0 victory over ten-man Udinese in Italy.

It was only his third strike for the club he joined for £16m in the summer of 2011 - and his first since May 8 - but he would have had another had it not been for a brilliant reaction save from former Liverpool goalkeeper Daniele Padelli. But with Young Boys beating Anzhi the goal was the difference between the Reds reaching the knockout stages for the ninth time in 11 attempts and crashing out.

The story is too old to be commented.
