Daniel Sturridge is hurt by his Euro 2012 omission

Chelsea star Daniel Sturridge has vowed to bounce back from the disappointment of being omitted from Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2012.

The Blues forward scored 13 goals in 45 appearances for club and country last season but it was not enough to win him a place in the England squad.

“I feel hurt, but you know, maybe it is a blessing in disguise,” Sturridge told the Jamaica Observer.

“It’s going to spur me on to do better. It’s going to drive me to want more success and to be a better footballer. I’m upset about it, but not too much.”
