Liverpool, Everton youngsters star in opening U17 World Cup win for England

England kicked off their U17 World Cup campaign with victory over Rwanda.

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling, 16, went close early on when his 20-yard strike came back off a post.

But Everton striker Hallam Hope made no mistake on 68 minutes, collecting a long ball before chipping keeper Marcel Nzarora.

It was Sterling, though, who had the final say when he curled in a stunning effort from the left flank with four minutes left.

John Peacock's side now top Group C with games against Canada and Uruguay still to come.
