Roy Hodgson is thinking about keeping on Liverpool‘s Raheem Sterling to play in the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland, reports Sportsmail.
This, according to the paper, would be instead of allowing the up-and-coming winger from taking part in a Euro play-off for the Under 21s against Serbia.
Sterling was a shock call-up for the World Cup qualifier between England and Ukraine last month, but was an unused substitute.
The 17-year-old has impressed so far at Liverpool, and according to the Mirror, he is set to be given a new deal by Brendan Rodgers after some pleasing performances in the Premier League so far.
Raheem Sterling grew up in Jamaica and moved to London with his mother at the age of five. He started out at Queens Park Rangers’ academy aged 10, and signed for Liverpool in 2010. The first goal he scored for the Liverpool youth team was during a friendly which ended as a 2-2 draw against Hibernian and has played for England from under-16 level.
England will be hoping for a better performance in their next World Cup qualifier, which is against San Marino after a 1-1 draw against Ukraine last month.
