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.

Let's not find scapegoats here. But it's Moreno's fault mainly
