Liverpool starlet Sterling delighted scoring for England U17 in World Cup

Liverpool teen Raheem Sterling was delighted to score for England in their U17 World Cup opener against Rwanda.

The Liverpool winger capped a fine display with a well-taken 86th minute strike to add to Hallam Hope's opener and secure a 2-0 victory for the Three Lions in Mexico.

"I thought it was a great team performance, the boys played really well," said Sterling.

"I would like to thank them all for supporting me through a rough patch too, as I haven't scored for England in a while. It was good to get the goal and I am really pleased that we started the tournament with a win."

He added: "It was a bit of a relief to score, I tried to be patient after hitting the post and having a few chances in the first-half. But I thought it was coming, waited for my chance to come, and it did and I was grateful for it."
