England boss, Gareth Southgate has hailed Raheem Sterling and tipped him to be a future captain for the Three Lions.
Raheem Sterling is one of England’s most in-form players, having scored three goals in a 5-0 win over the Czech Republic on Friday.
Gareth said, “We’ve had three or four players captaining the team, and Raheem is developing lots of the qualities those guys have,”
“He has those qualities. It’s difficult to talk about a potential captain when the captain [Harry Kane] is in the hotel waiting to go out for dinner, but in terms of his personal qualities, he’s shown some outstanding personal qualities.”
“I decided to promote him into the leadership group in between November and March, observing his maturity and influence,”
“I think when you speak to other young players, he’s one of the first they speak about making them feel really comfortable in the environment. That was a really important move for him.”
“For me, the biggest thing is he’s in such a confident mood, he’s finishing without thinking,”
“He’s in flow, and for any sportsman that’s a great place to be. You want to play without thinking. As soon as you think about what you’re going to do, you hesitate.”
