Steven Gerrard says Daniel Sturridge can star in Brazil

England played Denmark and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge scored the game winner. His teammate and captain with both club and country, Steven Gerrard, thinks Sturridge can steal the show in Brazil at the 2014 World Cup.

“Daniel’s got the world at his feet and can be whatever he wants to be if he keeps working hard,” Gerrard said, via The Sun. “His form has been scintillating this season and watching him close up in training, I see what qualities he’s got.

“Everyone will be looking for Suarez, Ronaldo, the usual suspects to stand up and be the star of the tournament, but Daniel is certainly capable of starring at this World Cup.

“With the emergence of people like Raheem Sterling, Sturridge, Andros Townsend, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, players are coming to the party each week showing that they’re big talents for their clubs.

“What we need now is to get them to gel and for it to happen for England at a major tournament.

“The key is to click for a run of games in a short space of time. If we can do that, I believe we can have a successful tournament.”
