Daniel Sturridge, England’s forgotten man, makes his Perth Glory debut in his first game in 21 MONTHS.

When DANIEL STURRIDGE made his Perth Glory debut, he was making his first appearance in nearly two years.

The former England international came on as a late substitute in Perth’s 1-1 draw with Adelaide United in their A-League debut.

After spending two weeks in hotel quarantine upon his arrival in Australia, the striker was given ten minutes to shake off the ring rust.

While he was unable to assist his team in finding the game-winning goal, his presence at HBF Park was felt long before the game began.

The game was sold out, according to the club, with a capacity crowd of 20,500 fans hoping to see their new signing.

Sturridge was once a Liverpool and England star, but has struggled to find regular playing time in recent years.

After breaking betting rules in March of last year, he was given a four-month ban.

After only 16 appearances for Trabzonspor, his contract was ripped up.

Following that, the 32-year-old went on a 21-month hiatus as he looked for a way back into the game.

As he continued to train alone during his exile, he missed out on potential opportunities in the United States and Spain.

The Perth Glory then came in and offered him a one-year contract to relocate to Western Australia.

After spending a fortnight in Covid isolation after arriving in the state, the ex-Manchester City youth player was eager to get going.
