Saturday was not kind to England’s Daniel Sturridge. The usually dependable target man looked more like the subject of target practice in the Three Lions’ last World Cup tune-up match against Honduras.

First, Sturridge received a nasty shot to the man area from Emilio Izaguirre: (Izaguirre would receive a yellow card for this completely uncalled for act, so at least justice was done.)

Later in the match, after Sturridge bottled a few chances he would normally convert, the Liverpool man was hit by a beer can thrown from the stands, probably by a fan who was displeased with the performance:

Hopefully for England, Sturridge will be doing more of the striking in Brazil, rather than getting struck by things.
