Daniel Sturridge has promised to be “fighting fit” for Liverpool soon after the striker was ruled out of England’s qualifier against Switzerland due to injury.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury blow during training at St George’s Park facility on Friday, undergoing a scan to ascertain the severity of the thigh problem.

And the FA released a statement this afternoon that confirmed the Liverpool forward had been forced to withdraw from the Three Lions squad and would return to his club.

An FA spokesman said: “He has had a scan and will now return to Liverpool FC for treatment. He will play no part in the forthcoming Switzerland match.”

Sturridge, who was one of England’s brightest players alongside Reds team-mate Raheem Sterling in a 1-0 win against Norway on Wednesday, appeared disconsolate following the setback.

“Heartbroken soul right now believe me. Hopefully be back soon fighting fit for LFC. Nothing worse than being injured. My heads gone,” Sturridge posted on Twitter.

Sturridge has made a bright start to the Premier League season after scoring Liverpool’s winner to seal a 2-1 victory over Southampton in their opening game.

The former Manchester City forward played a key role in the Reds’s first strike in a 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane last weekend.
