On Tuesday, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was crowned England Player of the Year for 2019, beating off competition from the likes of Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane.

The Liverpool captain saw off competition from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane to claim the accolade. England fans voted for Bronze ahead of 2018 victor Ellen White in second and Beth Mead in third.

Henderson made seven England appearances a year ago, passing the 50-cap mark during a 5-1 away win against Montenegro.

Both players also won the men's and women's Champions League titles with their respective clubs.

Henderson, 29, also played a key role in England's third place in the League of Nations, and was a regular at Gareth Southgate in the midfield, as England qualified for the 2020 Eurocup.

Bronze, who has 81 caps, was also named Uefa Women's Player of the Year in 2019 after helping Lyon to four trophies.

The 28-year-old rightback was part of the England squad that won the SheBelieves Cup last year and reached the World Cup semifinals in France.

It is the second time Lyon star Bronze has claimed the England honour, having previously won it in 2015.

A trip to Austria and another Wembley fixture against Romania are also scheduled for early June as warm-up games before the tournament kicks off with a group-stage clash with Croatia, who knocked England out at the semi-final stage of the World Cup in 2018.
