I've see many a predicted England team for the Euros and not many have Sturridge in. He's quality. Should start.

No more, Moreno
Moreno is Sevilla's best player in the Europa League final. Two years after he actually played for them in it.

Celtic must now recover in time for this weekend's start of the Scottish Premiership season. They face Hearts on Saturday.
