Sturridge scored in the 37th minute of England's 1-2 loss to Italy in their World Cup opener on Saturday.
Sturridge's goal was a huge sigh of relief for the English after Claudio Marchisio put Italy up 1-0 only two minutes earlier. However, England were unable to break through again and they eventually fell thanks to a Mario Balotelli goal in the 50th minute. Sturridge will continue to lead the attack for England, who still have to face Costa Rica and Uruguay in group play.
