No other member of Gareth Southgate’s squad was involved at the midfielder’s first — Euro 2012 — and only teenage versions of Raheem Sterling and Luke Shaw went to Brazil for the World Cup two years after.

Henderson, then, has been this England’s great stayer, catching the tail end of the ‘golden generation’, riding out the drab Roy Hodgson years, from which not many emerged to play a part in Southgate’s steady revolution, which he still has faith will end in glory in Qatar.

In fact, only three men have ever pulled on the shirt at six tournaments and only one, Sol Campbell, has done so in succession.

“With all the players involved in England throughout my career, it’s always been a battle,” Henderson, 32, said of his latest tussle for a place on the plane to the Middle East.

The Liverpool man is a Champions League and Premier League-winning captain, worth every one of his 69 caps, and at the 2018 World Cup was magnificent, holding the fort on his own behind a pair of shuttling No8s.

“I hope not!” he said, when asked whether this World Cup was his last chance to lift a trophy with England.

Bellingham’s Champions League displays for Borussia Dortmund over the past two seasons have put weight behind calls for his accelerated involvement and, tantalisingly, the teenager’s rare box-to-box qualities have the potential to toe what has been a contentious line between security and stifled creativity.
