Xherdan Shaqiri heaped praise on Daniel Sturridge after Liverpool FC’s 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday night.

The England international started his first Champions League game since moving to Liverpool FC in a £12m deal from Chelsea FC in January 2012.

Sturridge made his mark in the 30th minute with a powerful header to break the deadlock in emphatic fashion in the Champions League clash.

The 29-year-old wasted the chance to restore Liverpool FC’s two-goal cushion in the second half when the Champions League winner miscued his header.

Roberto Firmino came off the bench to replace Sturridge in the second half and the Brazil international went on to score an added-time winner at Anfield.

Shaqiri, who replaced Mohamed Salah in the final minutes of the European clash, credited Sturridge for his performance and underlined the collective attitude of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

“Every team needs every player. To be successful during the whole season we need every player,” Shaqiri told Liverpool FC’s website.

“We’re going to have a lot of games – tough games – so every player has to be ready. We have a really good team and everybody can play. Every player is going to be important during the season.”

Shaqiri moved to Liverpool FC in a £12.5m deal from Championship side Stoke City in the summer transfer window.

The Switzerland international has Champions League experience following stints at Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.

Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action against Southampton at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday.
