Jordan Henderson England Colombia World Cup
The Liverpool midfielder drew unprecedented comparisons to the floor-happy Brazil superstar when he was felled in Tuesday's last 16 match

Jordan Henderson admittedly does not very often win comparisons to Brazil star Neymar, but there were plenty of people that saw parallels during England's World Cup clash against Colombia

The last-16 tie sparked into life at the end of the first half when a fracas broke out ahead of a free-kick perched dangerously close to David Ospina's penalty area. 

Henderson was sent tumbling to the floor by Colombia's Boca Juniors enforcer, Wilmar Barrios, who appeared to head butt the midfielder. 

But while Barrios' most likely merited a red card rather than the yellow eventually showed, Liverpool's star also found himself in the spotlight for his rather exaggerated reaction. 

Coming just 24 hours after Neymar's antics were beamed across the world, is it now safe to say that Henderson is England's answer to the PSG forward?
