From the Ricoh to the Donbass Arena
Jordan Henderson completed a whirlwind three-and-a-half years since making his full league debut by coming on as a substitute in England's first game of Euro 2012 against France on Monday.
That league debut came for Coventry City in their Championship defeat at Derby on the final day of January 2009.
The then 18-year-old went on to help the Sky Blues beat Blackburn in the FA Cup to earn a quarter-final tie against Chelsea and the biggest crowd ever at the Ricoh Arena for a City game.
Trailing 1-0 in that game, Henderson attempted to get the crowd going with a wave of his arms which seemed to be copied from similar gestures he had seen on tv and which betrayed his young age.
He has come a long way in a short time since then and although the fee that Liverpool paid Sunderland for his services has hung around his head somewhat this may yet be the first of many competitive tournament appearances he makes for England.
