Jordan Henderson promises he won't use fatigue as an excuse when the new Premier League season gets underway.
The new Liverpool signing insists he can cope with the demands of regular football, with the youngster ready to feature in the England team at the European Under 21 Championship.
Henderson, 20, signed for Liverpool last week in a deal reported to be worth £20million.
And the midfielder claims that representing his country should not be overlooked despite a long campaign.
"I know there are managers and players worried about burnout and playing too much, but I feel fine after the season," he told liverpoolfc.tv
"Yes I've played a lot, but I've still got lots to give, still got energy. We are young and want to play football and can achieve something special for our country."
Henderson is looking to use the tournament in Denmark as a springboard back into Fabio Capello's full England squad.
"At U21 level, we feel there is a process whereby you can get passed through the ranks. If you do well, Fabio Capello will notice or Stuart Pearce will tell him.
"He goes to a lot of the games to watch us and that is important to all the players who play in the U21s."
