Italy and Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne has admitted his favourite player in the England ranks is Liverpool hitman Daniel Sturridge.

Heading into the World Cup in Brazil with the Azzurri off a fine end of season surge at Napoli, which saw him score two goals in the Coppa Italia final, Insigne is hoping he can make an impact against England in Italy's group opener.


Insigne, who has been strongly linked with Arsenal already this summer, rates England highly, feeling they have experience all over the pitch.

"The wingers and attackers for England are great players, they have experience in the Champions League and are great champions", Insigne explained at a press conference.


"They are a great team, but we, if we play like we know we can, we can put anyone in trouble."

And Insigne revealed the player in the England team he most admires.

"Who do I like the most? Sturridge."
