Liverpool winger Sterling set to play in U21 Euros

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has been given the green light to be part of England's U21 Euros team this summer.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has told England Under-21 coach Stuart Pearce he has no problems with the winger, 18, going to the finals in Israel.

Sterling has been pulled out of the first-team firing line since Christmas to save him from burnt out.

Rodgers said: “I don’t think it would do Raheem any harm. Going to a tournament like that, if he was selected, will be good for his experience.”
