Raheem-Sterling-360x238Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has pledged his international future to England, ruling out switching his allegiance to Jamaica.

The 18-year-old, who holds dual nationality after being born in Kingston to Jamaican parents, has represented England at every level from under-16 onwards and won his first senior cap for Roy Hodgson’s side in last month’s 4-2 defeat in Sweden.

He remains eligible to play for the country of his birth as the Stockholm fixture was only a friendly, but has no plans to abandon England.

Quoted in several newspapers, he said, “It was a dream come true (to play against Sweden). As a 15-year-old I can remember sitting at home and praying to get an under-16 call-up, so to be getting a senior call-up a few years later was one of the best things that ever happened to me.”
