Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard sees teammate Danny Sturridge as an England first-choice.

Gerrard wants Sturridge and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney to lead England's attack.

"For me, Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge is the partnership that every England fan wants to see," said Gerrard. "You have seen what he offers and if we can keep Daniel and Wayne on the pitch, so much the better. He is in top form and has made a brilliant start to the season."
