Liverpool boss Rodgers: Sterling most tactically gifted I've worked with

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists Raheem Sterling is ready for an England return.

Rodgers says the youngster can handle the step up in tactical intensity.

"People talk about the World Cup being too early for Sterling because he's only got pace. But I can tell you now, I see this boy every single day of my life and I see his technique.

"He's one of the most tactically gifted players I have worked with; how he presses the ball, how he gets up to the ball and his technique is wonderful. He's more than pace. What he has got for a young player is responsibility on the pitch."
