Sturridge Over Injury Concern

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has declared himself fit and ready to face the Germans in Tuesday’s friendly.

The goal-poacher picked up a foot injury during the Reds’ 4-0 victory over Fulham at Anfield last weekend but has stated that he has recovered.

“I am raring to go, the pain is not too bad,” Sturridge told a news conference. “It’s not a serious injury – the pain’s not too bad.

“Every game we play in is important for us, it’ll be a tense game, I’m looking forward to it.”

Sturridge has vowed to nail down a spot in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

“There are two games before the selection [for the World Cup squad], it is important everyone stakes their claim, and when an opportunity comes you take it,” he continued.

“I’m just working hard, I’m not put pressure on myself, the manager is there to make the decision, I will just work hard and train hard and hope I’m in the team.”

“If I can remain fit I’m sure the opportunity will be there and I’ll be able to take them. I’m not worrying about anything other than playing football.”
