Hodgson confident Liverpool's Sterling will choose England over Jamaica

England coach Roy Hodgson hopes Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling will commit his international future to the Three Lions. Hodgson hopes 17-year-old Sterling will choose to play for England even though he is also eligible to be chosen for Jamaica.

He said: "Raheem might have Jamaican roots but he has been born and brought up in England and has got the ability to play for the England national team.

"I'd like to think he would prefer that and would choose us over Jamaica but if that is his desire, we would have to accept that.

"I've not him invited here because I'm worried about overtures from other countries but because he is a potential England player of the near future, not distant future."
