Raheem Sterling in line for England World Cup berth

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is set to be given the chance to prove that he’s ready for a role in England’s World Cup squad, according to reports from The Mirror.

The Reds wide-man has been in fantastic form of late, with his two-goal haul against Arsenal last weekend his top performances of what has been a fine season for the teenager.

It is understood that England boss Roy Hodgson has been paying close attention to the 19-year-old, and is ready to hand him the chance to impress in the Three Lions’ upcoming friendly against Denmark.

Sterling has already made his senior international debut – at the age of 17 against Sweden – but this was seen as a move from the FA to prevent him from opting to represent Jamaica.

He then slipped away to the U-21 side, and also slid off the radar at Liverpool after an initial bright patch after breaking into the first-team.

However he has been a regular started for Brendan Rodgers over the past few months, and has been, arguably, England’s top performing winger.

Sterling is in direct competition with the likes of Adam Johnson, Andros Townsend and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but Hodgson is attracted to his electric speed as he plans to use a counter-attacking style in Brazil.
