Daniel Sturridge feeling no pressure
Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge says he feeling no pressure after being given the No.9 jersey by the England National team. Daniel Sturridge will be wearing the same No.9 jersey which was earlier donned by legends Alan Shearer and Sir Bobby Charlton for England.
The former Chelsea striker said, "I don't feel any pressure in terms of the task ahead because I feel that we have prepared for this. I am excited by it all. When you are young you always want these moments. This is my first World Cup. It's just embracing it all, not about feeling any pressure to do something amazing. I just have to play my normal game."
Daniel Sturridge has been in stunning form after making a switch from London to Liverpool and has scored 31 goals in 43 appearances he made with the Merseyside club. He has made a lethal striking partnership with Uruguay striker Luis Suarez and are famously referred to as the SAS partnership among the Liverpool fans.
Sturridge has made 34 appearances for the Reds this season and has scored 27 goals and having 7 assists to his name in all competitions.
Sturridge will further face internal competition in the form of Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck who is also a part of the squad thus providing further headache to England manager Roy Hodgson as to who will start alongside spearhead Wayne Rooney.
