Raheem Sterling "really happy" to see Jadon Sancho score for England

Raheem Sterling was delighted to come good on Jadon Sancho’s late-night requests as he helped the teenager to his first England goals.

The 19-year-old became the youngest player to score twice for the Three Lions since Wayne Rooney in the entertaining 5-3 win over Kosovo.

Sancho, who started ahead of Marcus Rashford, also grabbed an assist as Gareth Southgate’s side made it four wins from four in their Euro 2020 qualification.

The Borussia Dortmund winger has Sterling, who also found the net, to thank for opening his international account as he laid them both on a plate, just as Sancho had asked almost 24 hours earlier.

“He was in my room at 10.30 last night begging for me to square one for him so I was really happy to see him score his first one,” Sterling said.

“He is a good kid, even when I was at that age I wasn’t doing some of the things he is doing, he is professional, he does all of his treatment, he is in the ice bath.

“I see that he really wants to do well and he has got the ability as well, he is not just relying on his ability. He is putting in hard work in the training sessions.”

And Sterling knows if England have any designs to win major tournaments they have to cut it out.

“We were ruthless at times and at this level, and we are playing at a high level now, at half-time that game has to be finished.

“We can’t give away sloppy chances, against bigger teams, no disrespect to Kosovo I thought they played some great football at times, we knew it was going to be difficult, but in the big tournaments against the better teams we can’t be giving them any sort of any hope or opportunity.

“We have got to finish the game off.”
