Man City attacker Sterling determined to be in shape for Euros

Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling is desperate to be in shape for the Euros.

Ahead of Euro 2020 this summer, Sterling is one of the few England talents that is almost a certainty to be named in Gareth Southgate's squad for the tournament.

"I am hopefully looking to end the season on a high with City now and then turn my focus to England," he said when asked about England's chances at Euro 2020.

"I definitely want to be a part of that group, with a good bunch of quality players who are all in contention to start.

"When I first went into the England set up to now, we do feel ourselves a bit, we do fancy ourselves in games, going to games, and I think we are really focused on winning and focused on putting in a good performance and focused on trying to achieve being the number one team in the world."

He also added that the squad must head into the tournament with the confidence and belief that they can win England's first major trophy since 1966.

"I tell people to be confident. Tell people you want to win the Euros, you want to win World Cups. And if the whole team aren't saying that then I don't think there is a chance of doing it."
