With another Premier League season fading into memory for everyone other than Leicester City fans, the punters in the Transfer Tavern have focused their collective minds on Euro 2016.
Club allegiances are (somewhat) put to one side as the bar-stool-experts list their starting lineups for England and prepare to lambast Roy Hodgson no matter who he picks.
Most of the debate centres around the central striking role, with Wayne Rooney’s inclusion or not proving to be the most divisive matter at hand.
With Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy emerging as genuine top class forwards, the England skipper is looking under real pressure.
However, a certain Daniel Sturridge has also reminded our punters just how good he actually is.
A stunning goal in the Europa League final has propelled him back into contention for a starting berth, and the 26-year old has revealed to the Daily Mirror he is confident of that.
‘For me, it’s down to Roy, and who he wants to select on the day’, revealed the former Man City and Chelsea star.
‘I can only say I know what I can bring to the team and what I can do.’
“I don’t want to put anyone else’s achievements down… but I will just say I know what I can do, and then it’s down to Roy to select whoever he wants to select.
“I believe in myself, y’know. I’m fresh, I’m good to go for the Euros. I am grateful to God that I am out there playing every week again.
“I am ready. When called upon, I will do the job.”
