Gary Lineker praises Daniel Sturridge on Twitter for Europa League final strike

The pundit was joined by several other pundits praising the Liverpool striker for his goal against Sevilla.

Gary Lineker has reacted on Twitter praising Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge for his strike in the Europa League final against Sevilla.

The Liverpool forward proved to be key to Liverpool once again as he handed his side the lead in the Europa League final against Sevilla.

With the tie heading towards 0-0 at half time, he received the ball on the edge of the area, taking advantage of some loose defending to strike a super effort with the outside of his boot.

It was a wonderful goal from the Reds striker, worthy of any final, that once again showcased his quality in front of goal and demonstrated why they are desperate to keep him fit and in their team.

And Lineker was more than impressed with the goal, praising Sturridge on Twitter alongside several other pundits, such as John Hartson and Ian Wright.

Former Liverpool goalkeeper David James offered a different viewpoint though, criticising Sevilla goalkeeper Soria for the goal.

Nonetheless, even he was keen to praise the striker for taking advantage of the mistake to hand his side a crucial lead in the game.
