Sterling led England to a 5-3 win over Kosovo on Wednesday night and has been in remarkable form throughout 2019.
He responded: “As I said you look at these players the most remarkable thing about them is that they do it not just for two or three seasons, but through their whole career, season after season.
"This is my first at a high level and I have just got to continue.
"Keep trying and learning and trying to get to the top."
He felt his latest England outing was one of his best international performances to date.
I thought it was one of my best England performances," Sterling said.
“I didn't like the look of my stats when I had that long drought, but from that night in Spain when I got two the goals have flowed from then."
