Daniel Sturridge declared he was ready to take on the cream of Europe after showing why he may be the only man capable of filling the void left by suspended England talisman Wayne Rooney this summer.

Sturridge needed an early injury to Steven Gerrard to get his chance in Wednesday night's 3-2 friendly defeat to Holland, but the Chelsea forward took it with both hands in what was a man-of-the-match 57-minute display.

The 22-year-old said: "Going into the next few weeks and months for my club, I just need to continue to work hard for the team and to play well and to help get assists and goals for my team, and then hopefully that'll be enough to get on the plane."
