Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is determined to keep impressing as he bids to secure a starting spot for England for their World Cup opener against Italy.

Sturridge was on target in the 3-0 friendly win over Peru at Wembley Stadium on Friday evening and has now netted in three of his last five international outings.

However, the Reds frontman is far from complacent about his chances of selection to face the Azzurri in Manaus on Saturday 14th June.

"I am just here to work hard in training and in the games and show what I can do, which is the same for everyone else in the squad," Sturridge told reporters.

"There are obviously certain players who have their spots nailed down, but in my mind I haven't and I am working hard every day to continue to show what I can do.

"For me there are no guarantees in football and I will just work hard and not worry about which team the manager will pick.

"I will focus on what I can for the team and leave the decisions to the boss because that is what he does."

England and Sturridge have flown out to Miami to prepare for the their final two World Cup warm-up fixtures, against Ecuador and Honduras, before they move on to Brazil for the main event.
