Daniel Sturridge: Happy to be fit for England

The Premier League's top-scorer was forced out of England's crucial double header with Ukraine and Moldova last month - but he is now available for the final two qualifiers with Poland and Montengero.

Sturridge is now hoping that his form for Liverpool will be enough to earn a start for Roy Hodgson's side.

"I'm fit and ready to go and I'm really happy about that, as I was really gutted to miss the last two England games," said Sturridge.

"I feel I'm in the form of my life and hope to give the England boss a selection problem."

Wayne Rooney also missed England's last double-header, but like Sturridge is now available and captain Steven Gerrard is delighted to have both available.

"I'm glad Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge will be available for us after missing the last two games because they are players that can make an awful lot of difference to the squad," said Gerrard.

"Every opposition will have their tricky players and Montengero and Poland with have their match winners as well, but we will have the better match winners - I tell you that!"

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
