Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling: Performance for England (Graphics) 0

How can you not have been impressed with Raheem Sterling last night?

He cramped in the second-half and he fell foul of the climate, but before that he was so dynamic and fearless - it really was great to watch an England player with that level of self-confidence.  And, actually, there was a play-making, ball-playing aspect to his game last night which wasn’t always visible in Liverpool red last season.

A bigger England write-up is on its way, but in the meantime here are Sterling’s graphics from last night - via Squawka:
