Jordan Henderson claims England are still an improving force in Euro 2016 qualifying ahead of their clash with Estonia on Sunday.

The Three Lions currently top Group E after victories against Switzerland and San Marino in the opening two matches of their qualifying campaign.

Estonia are coming into this game on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Lithuania on Thursday night, but they did beat Slovenia last month and sit handily in third place in the Group.

Henderson predicts that Estonia will be “very difficult” to beat in Tallin, but he remains confident there is more than enough quality within the England camp to get a positive result. England are 1.23 to win, while Estonia are at 11.48 and the draw 5.56.

“They have had some good results, but we’ll go into it confident, we have good enough players and a good enough team to go there and get a result and a good performance. That’s what we’ll look to do,” said the Liverpool midfielder.

Despite a strong start to qualifying so far, Henderson still feels there is much more to come from this current crop of England players.
He added: “We feel as though we can still do a lot more, we can still improve.

“We’ve been good over the last few games but are still a long way off from where we want to be, but there is a lot of talent, a lot of potential in the group.”
England manager Roy Hodgson has reported a clean bill of health ahead among his squad ahead of Sunday’s game at the A Le Coq Arena.
He has previously hinted that he may switch around a couple of players for the Estonia tie, with the game coming just three days after the win at Wembley over San Marino.
