Liverpool fans are wondering why Daniel Sturridge thanked Robbie Fowler for his goal

Congratulations if you had God in your fantasy team this week.

Following his brilliant injury time winner in England's 2-1 win over Wales, Daniel Sturridge was keen to give praise to a higher being for his goalscoring chance - and we don't mean Roy Hodgson.

This comment had viewers divided. Some found it refreshing that a player was humble enough to praise the Lord at such a moment, whilst others didn't appreciate religion being brought into proceedings.

Liverpool fans, on the other hand, had a different take on it altogether. They were pleasantly surprised that Robbie Fowler - nicknamed 'God' by the Anfield faithful - had been namechecked by the England man.
