And it appears the Liverpool manager is excited about how Gareth Southgate’s men are getting on at the tournament – despite the fact he’s German.
Henderson has been an integral part of the Three Lions team which has made it to today’s quarter final against Sweden in Samara.
He’s played in three of England’s four games so far, starring with his dominant midfield displays, but he was so nearly the fall guy after missing an early penalty in the shootout with Colombia on Tuesday night.
Thankfully for Henderson and England, Jordan Pickford’s save helped them advance and forget all about the Liverpool man’s miss.
So Henderson was a lot more positive while speaking to BBC before today’s game.
He reflected on the competition so far as well as his role in getting them to the last eight, but his best revelation was about Klopp:
Jordan Henderson on BBC1 just now: Jurgen Klopp's been calling him after each game to congratulate him, really happy, and saying "Come on, England!"

How sound is Klopp?
Both will be hoping Henderson can be just as important this afternoon as they look to advance past Sweden into the semi-finals.
