Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge takes ‘first’ England seflie
Daniel Sturridge takes the first England selfie of their World Cup campaign with Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Daniel Sturridge has declared that he is ready to work hard to help England win the World Cup after posing for the first Three Lions selfie of their summer campaign.
The 24-year-old Liverpool striker was included in Roy Hodgson’s 23-man squad for the World Cup after scoring 21 Premier League goals this season.
Sturridge, who moved to Liverpool in a £12m deal from Chelsea in January 2013, was omitted from Hodgson’s travelling party for Euro 2012.
And the former Manchester City forward posed alongside Arsenal duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere as England travel to their training camp.
Sturridge posted: “Tired eyes right now. Posting up my first selfie [email protected] @jackwilshere. Let the hard work begin… #england”
Meanwhile, England centre-half Phil Jagielka backed Everton team-mate Ross Barkley to star at the World Cup.
“Ross is a fantastic player,” Jagielka told Sky Sports News. “He’s very frustrating to play against because he has got a tremendous amount of ability.
“I’m not 100% sure what role he will have during the World Cup but I’m sure it will be a very important one whether he’ll be starting or coming off the bench.
“He’s grown not only as a player but as a person in the last 12 months. You can see the confidence of playing week in, week out has helped his game develop.”
