Daniel Sturridge injury tops England worries.
With England facing perhaps their toughest game of their Euro 2016 qualifying group tonight, CaughtOffside looks at five reasons that there is surely more misery to come for fans of the Three Lions.

Make no mistake about it, England have lost a vitally important player in Daniel Sturridge after the Liverpool striker was ruled out with injury. The 25-year-old has risen his game to a new level in recent times under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers, and now genuinely looks like this country’s closest answer to a world class talent.
