Twitter explodes as maligned Liverpool ace nets stunning opener

Daniel Sturridge is certainly a divisive figure amongst the Liverpool supporters. In fact, in English football altogether.

Clearly one of the most talented technical footballers of his generation, the 26-year old’s nightmare spell with injuries has seen his stock plummet.

Overtaken by younger options at both club and country level, the Reds marksman was in danger of fast becoming the forgotten man.

However, the former Chelsea and Manchester City youngster reminded Jurgen Klopp, Roy Hodgson as well as Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy just how good he really is.

An absolutely stunning finish from just inside the box with the outside of his foot sent the travelling Mersey army into dreamland.

As well as users on Twitter.

With the Reds now just 45 minutes from Champions League football, as well as another European trophy, surely the England striker is staking his claim for a starting berth at Euro 2016.

If social media is anything to go by, Hodgson needn’t look much further.
