Sterling keen to learn from World Cup

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling says he will become a better player for having represented England at the World Cup, according to Sky Sports.

Sterling was part of Roy Hodgson’s squad in Brazil and played in all three of the Three Lions’ games as England bowed out at the group stage. Sterling played the full 90 minutes of the defeat to Italy, just over an hour of the reverse against Uruguay and was introduced as a substitute for the final 30 minutes of the draw with Costa Rica.

“For any young person to be involved in such a big tournament is obviously a great experience and it was no different for myself,” he said. “It was a good feeling to get out there on the pitch and show the world what I could do. Obviously on a team performance level we are disappointed with how the tournament went.

“We would have liked to be in the tournament up until now and all the way to the final but that was not the case,” Sterling continued. “It was a learning curve for me - an experience I am willing to learn from. Hopefully we build from this World Cup experience and go even further in the next four years.”

Sterling was sent off in a pre-World Cup friendly against Ecuador, dismissed for a challenge on Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia. Valencia also saw red for his reaction, with Sterling banned from the following friendly.
