England manager Roy Hodgson is giving serious consideration to naming Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling in his squad to face Sweden later this month.
The teenager has been a revelation for Brendan Rodgers' side this season after making his first-team breakthrough under Kenny Dalglish at the end of the previous term.
Centre of attention: Sterling has starred for Liverpool this season
His fine performances saw him called up into the full England squad for the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine before Stuart Pearce named him in his Under-21 set-up for the infamous clash against Serbia. And Hodgson is set to name Sterling in his squad to face Swedes.
It is hoped the move will persuade the youngster into committing his international future to England in the face of serious interest from his native Jamaica.
