“My Main Focus Is To Play For Chelsea”
Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge insists he’s remaining calm over his England future and claims he isn’t ‘stressing about’ playing for his country.
Sturridge has been tipped to be in the squad for next month’s friendlies against Spain and Sweden as Fabio Capello looks at alternative options to replace Wayne Rooney, following his ban for the opening three matches of Euro 2012.
Despite the 22-year-old being one of the country’s form forwards in 2011 he has yet to feature in the senior Three Lions setup.
“If England comes and I play for England then great,” Sturridge said at Chelsea’s latest ‘An Audience with…’ event at Stamford Bridge.
“But I am not really worried about playing for England – it is not something I am really stressing about.
“My main focus is to play for Chelsea every week and if I can do that then I am happy.
“It has been a long time I have been playing at Chelsea now and I have not been playing regularly so for me the most important thing is to be playing regularly.
“I could play a lot better than I am and I am getting used to the position out wide. I enjoy playing there.”
