Southgate praises Raheem Sterling

first_imgEngland head coach Gareth Southgate believes Raheem Sterling is finally ready to fulfill his potential for England after conquering his national team drought with his brace in the victory over Spain.The Manchester City forward excelled as he scored twice to inspire last month’s impressive 3-2 victory against La Furia Roja in the UEFA Nations League, and since then has scored three in four for his club side, who this week awarded him a new five-year deal.Following four in 11 for club and country before then the only consistent criticism has been his lack of killer instinct in front of goal, something he appears to have been convincingly overcome.“That (against Spain) was a big psychological barrier overcome and he has continued that form with his club over the last few weeks,” said Southgate, according to BT Sport.“We are really looking forward to seeing him again next week.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I am really pleased for him because he is in outstanding form. He had an outstanding performance against Southampton. We have got huge belief in him and that belief in his own game is coming now.”“We have been happy with his performances for a long time and the missing piece has been the goals; you can see what it meant to him in Seville to get the goals which he has been overdue with us.”“In any sport you’re at your best when you’re playing without thinking too much and that’s what he did.”“He got his chance and just hit it; he didn’t have an extra touch or wait an extra half-a-second or millisecond, he just hit things and that’s why he scored the goals he did. You want all players to be free of overthinking; that’s when they’re in a good place and a good flow.”last_img
