Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is reluctant for Danny Sturridge to join the England squad after their draw at Manchester City.

He is now a doubt for England's contest with Brazil this week.

"He got a knock just before half-time on his thigh," said Rodgers. "He wanted to give it a go in the second half but I think he'll be a doubt for the [England] game on Wednesday.

"It's unfortunate because he was terrific today. His hold-up play, his movement, his pace. He was a real, real threat. His combination with Suarez and Downing and Henderson up front was outstanding."
