Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling admits playing for England has always been an obsession.

After being included among the senior squad by Roy Hodgson in September, Sterling received his first cap two months later during a friendly with Sweden.

The teenager described the occasion as a 'dream come true' and pledged to progress further for the Three Lions.

"It was a good thing for me to be called up and make my debut. That was obviously a dream come true," Sterling said.

"As a 15-year-old I can remember sitting at home and praying to get an U16 call-up, so to be getting a senior call-up a few years later was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

"So obviously I want to keep driving on and do a bit more. It's 100 per cent going to be England from now on."
