Henderson: We have to match Serbia

England Under-21 captain Jordan Henderson knows his team-mates must rise to the challenge of facing a tough opponent in a difficult atmosphere to reach Euro 2013.

England can book their place in the finals of a European Championship for a fourth time in succession by holding on to their aggregate lead in the second leg of their play-off with Serbia in Krusevac.

Stuart Pearce's youngsters won the first leg of the encounter 1-0 at Carrow Road last Friday but Henderson is well aware the job is far from complete. He told "Serbia were a decent side and have some good players, they made it hard for us at home. We know it'll be another tough game."
