Dominic Calvert-Lewin Accused Of 'Poor Body Language' After Jordan Henderson Took His Penalty Away

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has bizarrely been accused of 'sulking' after Jordan Henderson took his penalty on Sunday evening.

Calvert-Lewin was England's designated penalty taker against Romania on Sunday evening after Marcus Rashford's substitution.

The Everton forward has since revealed he let Henderson take it - but talkSPORT's Danny Murphy had scathing words.

He also claimed Calvert-Lewin didn't attempt to score the rebound with England already 1-0 up.

Murphy stated: "I couldn't care less really in a friendly.

"The two penalty takers were off. [Henderson is] the captain. He decided 'I want to take it'.

"He flexed his muscles [and said] 'I am the captain and I am going to take it'. Fine. No problem with that."

The former Liverpool man continued: "You have got to be careful. You have a place in the squad and you have to understand what your place is.

"If you see the penalty, when Jordan took the penalty, Calvert-Lewin has got his hands on his hips. He doesn't go for the rebound... he's sulking because he didn't take it.

"He has had a wonderful season but he should be thankful that he is there. He didn't have a great end to the season.

"You don't spit your dummy out because your captain is taking the penalty."

Henderson has now made 59 appearances without scoring a goal for the Three Lions and yesterday saw him take pelters from all corners.

"We had Rashford on penalties and then Ward-Prowse, and they had both come off," the England boss told ITV Sport.

"We were expecting Dominic to take it, and I was expecting Hendo to walk over and make sure Dominic took it. I'll see what Hendo's thought process was after.

"Maybe we will pull rank next time!"
