Liverpool and England fans react to Daniel Sturridge's call-up on twitter

Daniel Sturridge

Fans were not positive about the Liverpool forward's call-up, with some citing his recent injury problems.

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge yesterday received his first call up for the England squad since September after a lengthy spell on the sidelines through injury at the start of the season. 

Sturridge picked up a thigh injury the last time he was on international duty which was the start of an injury nightmare for the forward having picked up further injuries to his thigh and calf, and kept him sidelined for five months.

Since his return from injury, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been trying to ease the forward back into action with some of the opinion that he is yet to find the form which led to him scoring a total of 24 goals for Liverpool last season. 

He has shown flashes of that form though - scoring on his comeback game against West Ham United, and has found the net on two other occasions since.

Liverpool fans are understandably concerned about the welfare of their main forward given what happened the last time he went to play for his country, while fans of other clubs are scratching their heads wondering why he has got the nod ahead of other forwards - notably QPR's Charlie Austin and Burnley's Danny Ings.
