England — 31 October 2012

Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling is set to hold talks with the Jamaican FA about representing the Caribbean country at international level.

The President of the Jamaican Football Federation Horace Burrell is set to fly to England to hold talks with the teenager.


The 17 year-old winger has made an impressive start to his career at Anfield and Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has made him a regular in the first team, despite his tender years. His skill and pace have been like a breath of fresh air to the Liverpool team.

There are very few English players that have the ability to run at defenders and scare them with sheer skill and tricky, but Sterling is certainly one them.


Sterling was born in Jamaica, but has represented England at every international except senior level. The youngster was recently called-up to the England squad for the 1-1 draw with Ukraine, but he didn’t get on the pitch.


Sterling is believed to be quite head-strong and opinionated, so I’m sure he will be the one having the final say on what country he represents at senior international level. He seems a character and characters are rare in the English game.


Raheem Sterling is the sort of young player that the England team are crying out for. England are currently lacking inspiration and Sterling’s attributes could be very useful for the Three Lions in the future. He is a very rare sort of talent.

He is not scared to try a trick or take people on. Too many of the England players at international level are scared to take a risk and lose the ball.


If Raheem Sterling has any ambition then he has to choose England. England may not win trophies, but they generally get to major tournaments and it will give the youngster the chance to shine on an even bigger stage. This decision is a no-brainer for me, but it’s all down to the player himself.

Which country will Raheem Sterling decide to represent at international level?
