(Football) England labor over Denmark
(03-06 10:38)

Daniel Sturridge's late header gave England a 1-0 victory over Denmark yesterday on a largely ineffective night in London for the World Cup-bound team in their final friendly before the squad is named.
The Liverpool striker netted his 20th goal in 28 games for club and country this season when he met Adam Lallana's cross at the far post in the 82nd minute, making a greater contribution in a central position than earlier on the left wing.
Although Sturridge had been repeatedly frustrated by goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel's flurry of saves, the English display lacked urgency and they only just avoided a third straight Wembley game without scoring.
It will hardly instill coach Roy Hodgson with confidence that his team can provide much of a threat in the far hotter Brazilian climate at the end of a draining English Premier League season.
