Forget it Jamaica! England call up Liverpool superkid Sterling

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has joined the senior England squad.

The news comes hours after Jamaica admitted they planned to hold talks with the Liverpool starlet about representing them.

Tottenham's Jake Livermore and Adam Lallana of Southampton have also been added after Theo Walcott withdrew and Daniel Sturridge missed training on Monday.

A statement from the FA read: "Theo Walcott has returned to Arsenal having woken on Monday morning with illness. Daniel Sturridge was forced to sit out of training also due to stomach cramps, but the England medical team are hopeful he will be available for Tuesday evening.

"Southampton's Adam Lallana, Tottenham Hotspur's Jake Livermore and Liverpool's Raheem Sterling will all join the squad."
