He questioned the fans' reaction to Maguire and branded the situation 'wrong' in a post on Twitter. 

"I can't get my head around what happened at Wembley tonight," said Henderson.

"Harry Maguire has been a colossus for England.

"Without him, the progress made at the last two tournaments would not have been possible.​

"To be booed at his home stadium, for no reason? What have we become? What happened tonight was just wrong. As someone who wants to win with England, I feel fortunate to share a dressing room with him.

"We all feel the same!"

Declan Rice also backed Maguire on social media and labelled fans booing Maguire a 'total embarrassment'. 

He also urged supporters to get behind the team ahead of the World Cup later this year. 

The West Ham midfielder tweeted: "Total embarrassment from whoever boo’d tonight. @HarryMaguire93 has been incredible every single time he’s put on the England shirt.

"Absolute nonsense now it’s becoming. Back your own players. Especially with a Major tournament coming up."​

The hostile reception towards Maguire didn't sit well with Gareth Southgate who hit out at England fans after the match.
