Liverpool fullback Johnson feels for Sturridge over England withdrawal

Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson is sorry teammate Danny Sturridge has been forced to withdraw from the England squad due to injury.

Johnson admits it was a bitter blow for the forward but backed him to be a star for club and country.

He said: "He has been a great player and signing for us.

"He has helped us massively so far and I'm sure that will continue. He scares defenders to death when he gets in little spaces and squares people up one on one."
