Sancho 'loves sharing pitch' with Man City ace Sterling

Borussia Dortmund whiz Jadon Sancho paid tribute to Manchester City ace Raheem Sterling after England's rout of the Czech Republic.

Sterling hit a hat-trick as Sancho made his Three Lions debut.

"He is a great player, as you can see on and off the pitch," Sancho told beIN Sports when asked about Sterling.

"He is a humble guy and I am just so delighted I am sharing the pitch with him and obviously I look up to him as a role model and especially starting with him was a great feeling.

"It was a great match for us, a great start obviously with a 5-0 win at home and it is a special feeling, especially getting my first competitive start for England in front of my family and I'm sure they will be proud of me."
