Manchester United goalkeeper, Dean Henderson, has revealed his delight at finally making his debut for the England national team, after his appearance in Thursday’s 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland.

The 23 year old was brought in to replace Burnley’s Nick Pope in the second half, and made sure to keep a clean sheet against the opponents.

England did win the match by 3-0, thanks to goals from Harry Maguire, who captained the team, Jadon Sancho and Everton forward, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

After the encounter, an elated Henderson took to his Twitter to write, “Dream come true to make my England debut!!!”
