Sturridge was preparing with the national team for England's Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland in Basle this morning when he is supposed to have fell to the ground and called for a physio.

Anxious wait

The FA twitter account has announced that the 25-year-old is set for a scan this afternoon to get to the root of the problem, and could be out of the clash with the Swiss on Monday.

It would be a blow to Roy Hodgson if his number one striker was out of potentially the toughest match of the qualifying campaign, particularly given Sturridge's recent impressive run of performances.


Despite not scoring in the turgid 1-0 win over Norway on Wednesday, Sturridge's link-up play with Raheem Sterling was a positive, and if the striker is out for several weeks, it would be a shame for Hodgson but could be even more of a concern to club manager Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers would have options in new signings Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli, but both players are quite different in style to the former Chelsea striker.

Sturridge is a very key player for Liverpool, having scored 21 league goals last season.
