Liverpool fans happy to see Daniel Sturridge miss out on the England squad

Gareth Southgate has announced his 25-man squad for the upcoming England internationals in the UEFA Nations League and Daniel Sturridge’s absence has sparked a reaction on both sides of the spectrum.

Sturridge looked as if he could be on his way out of Anfield in the summer, however, following a startling return of five goals during pre-season, he has got off to a flying start in the League, League Cup and in Europe, amounting four goals in two starts, leaving numerous Reds surprised at his omission.

However, despite the fact that no player warrants a call-up after just two starts this season, the majority of Liverpool fans interacting with the tweet looked to the positive side to his exclusion as it means that the 29-year-old doesn’t risk an injury, an unfortunate trait of his in recent years.

If Sturridge can retain this form and continue to be consistent when given game-time, Southgate may be left with no choice but to recall the forward in the near future.

The trio of Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson have all retained their places from the previous squad ahead of fixtures against the United States and Croatia later this month.
