Daniel Sturridge admits he is dreaming of playing for England at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

The Liverpool striker is expected to play a key part for Roy Hodgson’s men as England look to navigate their way out of a group containing Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica.

And the 24-year-old, who is set to make his return from an ankle injury in the coming weeks, believes that making the squad would be mark a “high point” in his career.

“If I can keep developing my game and get a place at the World Cup, I’ll be delighted. That would be an amazing achievement,” Sturridge told FourFourTwo magazine.

“When you consider where I’ve come from since last January, it’d be brilliant to be on that plane.

“Playing at a World Cup is a high point for any footballer, but to do it in Brazil will be extra special.

“There’s just something magical about the place, with the samba, the carnival atmosphere and the whole vibe there.

“Everything that surrounds the football actually adds to the football. God willing, I can be there to savour it all.”
