Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has insisted he’s back to his best ahead of England’s upcoming 2018 World Cup qualification fixture list.
The forward has endured a difficult string of injury setbacks at Anfield and has struggled to show any kind of consistency during his Anfield tenure of late, but international duty provides Sturridge with a chance to showcase his talent.
The Three Lions travel to face Malta on Friday before returning to Wembley for a home clash against Slovakia on Monday.
England offer little value as 1/50 (1.02) favourites to beat Malta, who are impossible 80/1 (81.00) underdogs, perhaps an ideal chance for Sturridge to excel:
“I feel as sharp as ever, I’m ready to go. I had a great pre-season, felt really good and I’m looking forward to the future, to be honest with you. I feel great, it’s the best I’ve felt for a long time, and I’m looking forward to this season.”
