Chelsea’s Sturridge to be part of Team GB

Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge is expected to be picked by Stuart Pearce as part of the Great Britain football team for this summer’s London Olympics, the Daily Mail has reported.



The newspaper adds that Sturridge will be used as Pearce’s main striker, the position he has wanted to play in at Chelsea for some time. Sturridge is more often used as a wide player at Stamford Bridge, with hefty competition in the form of Didier Drogba, now departed, and Fernando Torres, the £50m signing from Liverpool.


Sturridge was left out of England’s Euro 2012 squad by manager Roy Hodgson, who favoured a striking group of Wayne Rooney, Andy Carroll, Jermain Defoe and Danny Welbeck, with Theo Walcott and Ashley Young also able to act as auxiliary forwards. Sturridge was one of the names on Hodgson’s stand-by list, but unlike goalkeeper Jack Butland, centre-back Phil Jagielka and midfielder Jordan Henderson, he was not brought into the party due to injury.
