Man City ace Sterling: Why England fans left me frustrated

Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling admits losing the Euros final to Italy left him frustrated.

The 27-year-old England ace has questioned why people congratulated him after the tournament, after the disappointment of not lifting the trophy at Wembley.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4, Sterling said: "The last couple of years with Gareth (Southgate) you can see the steps we've been making as a team on the field and off the field.

"Everyone after the tournament (Euro 2020) was congratulating me and I was like 'congratulating me for what?'

"They were like 'no, you had a lovely tournament' - I was like 'that's not what the team set out to do,' it was really disappointing.

"Yes, it was a great journey but at the same time we want our hands on a trophy because there is nothing more important for me, for a lot of the boys, I think we would agree there is nothing bigger than winning a major tournament with England. I don't think you could beat that for us as players."
