England boss Roy Hodgson is hoping Sturridge will be back for the trip to Kiev to take on Ukraine on Tuesday.
"He reports back on Saturday evening; Sunday morning we have a training session before we leave for the Ukraine and, if he passes it, he'll be with us. If he doesn't he'll be staying with Liverpool,” he said.
