Daniel Sturridge missed England's match with Chile on Friday due to a thigh injury. Roy Hodgson was confident he would be able to face Germany on Tuesday, and all looked well until he limped out of training early.
On Monday morning in England's open training session, Sturridge walked off earlier than others with a suspected injury. It didn't look good for the Liverpool striker, but Hodgson has since confirmed that the 24-year-old will be starting the game at Wembley on Tuesday.
Given that Liverpool face a huge game against their rivals Everton on Saturday it is refreshing to see that Sturridge is pushing himself and putting his body on the line. With internationals it is not uncommon for players to pull out at the first sign of injury. For many, their club comes first and they would not want to risk aggravating an injury by representing their country.
