Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge & Man United’s Danny Welbeck were confident in pre England-Uruguay presser
Despite playing for rival Premier League sides in Liverpool and Manchester United, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck appear to be great mates.
This has already been evident in Brazil so far and was again on show in the pre England-Uruguay press conference on Tuesday.
Sturridge, as ever exuded confidence and Welbeck was also very positive despite the 2-1 defeat to Italy on Saturday.
There were laughs and jokes throughout – especially when one journalist asked “Danny” about Uruguay’s surprise defeat to Costa Rica.
Welbeck gave a vociferous defence of Manchester United and England team mate Wayne Rooney and backed him to good against Uruguay.
And, Daniel Sturridge revealed that he is not on texting terms with Luis Suarez during the World Cup and nor are any of his England team mates who also play for Liverpool.
