Before adding: “My bro and me ready for Brazil! #instalike #poldi #friends #dfb #Brazil2014 #team #RoadToWorldCup…”

Suspended England froward Raheem Sterling (@31sterling) will be cheering on his team-mates from the sidelines after his mid-week sending off: “Gutted can’t play in today’s game but be great to watch the lads”
