Raheem Sterling says he was delighted to be named England’s man-of-the-match after 1-0 victory over Norway at Wembley on Wednesday night.

The 19-year-old forward was handed his eighth England cap by manager Roy Hodgson as the Three Lions look to banish memories of this summer’s disappointing World Cup campaign.

Sterling scored in a 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in his most recent Premier League game, and the Liverpool teenager brought his club form to the international stage against Norway.

The Jamaican-born forward was England’s brightest spark in the friendly, and it was Sterling who won the home side’s second-half penalty which captain Wayne Rooney ruthlessly dispatched.

And Sterling was thrilled to gain more international experience as the forward underlined his growing importance to Hodgson.

Sterling scored nine goals in 33 Premier League appearances last season.
