After a promising start to his career, Daniel Sturridge has endured a nightmare in the past few years.

The former Chelsea man was once a pivotal figure in a successful Liverpool side; peaking in the 2013/2014 season where he scored a highly impressive 24 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions.

However, Sturridge has been plagued with injuries in the last few years, with a number of setbacks restricting his game time in recent campaigns.

And, even though he has now returned to full fitness, he has dropped down behind Roberto Firmino in the pecking order, and he is often required by Jurgen Klopp to make an impact off the bench.

His lack of playing time has even forced Gareth Southgate to drop him for his squad to face Germany and Brazil later on in the month, with the England manager commenting: "I don’t remember the last time Daniel had 90 minutes."


But any doubters about the 28-year-old's ability were completely quashed, after a video emerged showing Sturridge scoring an outrageous goal in Liverpool training.

Picking the ball up on the right wing and with his back to goal, the striker completely bamboozled Sadio Mane with a simply ridiculous piece of skill.

He then showed great calmness to roll the ball through the legs of Danny Ward and into the net, using his right foot.

Whereas Sturridge wheeled away in delight, Mane looked up to the heavens after being completely embarrassed by his teammate.

You can view the ridiculous goal here:

His goal attracted the attention of many Liverpool fans on Twitter, with many posting their disbelief at the skill that Sturridge was able to pull off.
