Daniel Sturridge & Wayne Rooney: Expected to spearhead England's World C

Daniel Sturridge & Wayne Rooney: Expected to spearhead England's World C

England's bid for World Cup glory this summer is likely to be spearheaded by strikers who ply their club trade at fierce Premier League rivals.

Sturridge and Rooney will lock horns in domestic competition this weekend when Liverpool travel to Manchester United, with both men looking to add to their impressive goal returns this term.

Attention will switch to international matters at the end of the campaign, though, with Sturridge and Rooney all but guaranteed to make Roy Hodgson's 23-man England squad if they can steer clear of injury.

Sturridge is looking forward to seeing what their partnership can deliver in South America, with the duo having worked hard to create an understanding which will benefit the Three Lions' cause.

The Liverpool man said in The Sun: "Wayne and I have been training hard together.

"We get on very well off the field and have a lot of banter about England things.

"When we get on the pitch we do the job the best we can and work for each other and the country.

"We just want to try and help the country be successful, that is the most important thing.

"Wayne's a nice guy and helps me out. He helped me score my first goal for England at Wembley when he gave me the penalty against Montenegro.

"He has helped my career and I'm thankful to him."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
