Sturridge ruled out for England

Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool star striker Daniel Sturridge has failed to recover from a thigh injury in time to play for England’s fixture with Moldova at Wembley on Friday evening.

The injury, which Sturridge suffered prior to Sundays clash with Manchester United, is not considered to be serious. However it is unclear whether the 24 year old will be fit to play against the Ukraine next Tuesday.

An FA statement read:

“As Roy Hodgson prepares his England team to face Moldova on Friday evening, Daniel Sturridge has returned to Liverpool for further treatment.  The squad departed St. George’s Park on Thursday afternoon ahead of the World Cup qualifier at Wembley, but the Liverpool forward will return to his club with the intention of joining the England squad again at the weekend and traveling to Ukraine.”

Looks like the international break has come at a good time for Liverpool and hopefully Sturridge will be fully recovered and ready to play against Swansea next weekend.

Cole set to leave Liverpool

Joe Cole

Looks like Joe Cole’s disappointing time at Anfield could soon be over after he has been told he is free to find another club.

West Ham appear to be the front runners for his signature and have started talks. Reports are he will be available on a free transfer, Liverpool will have to pay Joe Cole a settlement tho to cancel his current deal and get his £100,000 a week salary off the wage bill.

Joe Cole was signed from Chelsea on a free transfer in 2010. But after being sent off in his first match he never really settled in. He was then loaned to French club Lille last season.

Unfortunately Joe Cole will likely go down as one of Roy Hodgson’s most costly transfers due to his ridiculous wages he was receiving while hardly ever playing.
