Gareth Southgate admits Chelsea FC star has been impressing him

Raheem Sterling

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Southgate said: "It's exactly what I thought of him when I saw him playing for our Under-16s".

The former Republic of Ireland global watched on from a television studio as England shipped two soft goals which saw them lose their first qualification game since 2009.

According to Sky Bet, England are second-favourites to win the competition but Southgate has played down his team's chances of ending over 50 years without a major tournament success.

Highlights of the European Qualifier Group A game between the Czech Republic and England.

"We lose Danny Rose and after tonight we have to get a response". "We had a meeting as a group and Gareth [Southgate] sat us down and explained UEFA's protocol".

Raheem Sterling has said that England's players will "give UEFA a chance" to resolve any potential incidents of racially-motivated abuse during the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers away to Czech Republic and Bulgaria. "I think, especially in our country, where it's really diverse, getting to be around different ethnicities, I think that makes it a lot easier".


'We have to respond in the right way, we have a couple of days to prepare and we have to reward our supporters with a better performance. "But we conceded too many poor chances and we gave the ball away too many times".

"We've got plenty to look back on but we have to accept collectively there weren't enough good performances".

"We tried to change the shape in the first half but it didn't work as well as it might", admitted Southgate. "We'd much rather prevent a situation developing than try to manage it on the night and regret it afterwards".

"I'm obviously over the moon but I have to thank my players, first and foremost, because they played great", he said.

"I think we have had a lot of credit over the last couple of years and tonight we did not do enough", he told ITV. "We knew we'd have to be at full tilt to deal with the Czech Republic but we should have been strong enough to deal with them".
