World Cup Countdown: Sturridge can leave mark on Brazilian soil

| 03.06.2014

With England in Miami preparing for their final two warm-up games in some more Brazil-like temperatures, Ladbrokes have cranked up the heat once more with another scorching World Cup countdown special.

The bookies are offering 9/1 that England and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge continues his landmark season by lighting up the tournament with four or more goals in Brazil.

Studger showed exactly the sort of exhilarating goal-scoring form for England against Peru in their last friendly that he had treated Liverpool fans to all season, when curling in a beauty to set the Three Lions en route to victory.

That exquisite goal took the former Chelsea and Manchester City striker to a seasonal tally of 27 goals in only 38 games for club and country during 2013/14.

At 24 it may have taken a little longer than some had expected for Sturridge to light the blue touch paper on his career, but right now there are only a handful of more prolific strikers on the planet.

The fact that Studger scored in his opening five games of the season for Liverpool and later strung together a red-hot run of notching in eight consecutive games can only bode well for this bet.

Furthermore, the man who has quickly made the England number nine shirt his own has bagged three times in his last four appearances for his country, having made the transition to international football seamlessly.

If Studger hits the ground running in Brazil then it’s likely that Roy Hodgson’s exciting young team will not be making a return homewards anytime soon.

Alternatively, if you feel four goals is setting the bar too high, the Liverpool man is a 3/1-shot to be England’s leading scorer in Brazil.
