Liverpool pair Raheem Sterling and Adam Morgan are doing their club proud for the England Under-17s at the World Cup in Mexico.

Sterling stuck the second in England's opening group game against Rwanda and on Wednesday club team-mate Morgan headed John Peacock's side ahead against Canada.

The 16-year-old Morgan has had a season to remember at Liverpool, after going on a run of 17 goals in 12 games, including a goal on his reserve team debut.

The duo are two of six Anfield players in the England squad, and Sterling, who himself scored five goals for the club in their Youth Cup win over Southend and was included in the first team squad that travelled to Sparta Prague in the Europa League, says establishing himself in the first team is his next aim.


“Liverpool are one of the best clubs in the world, so it is always going to be very difficult to break into the first team, the players at the club are of top quality – but it was a great experience for me when I was in the squad for the Europa League games last season.

"Hopefully I will be able break into the Liverpool first team on a more regular basis, but at a club like Liverpool you can’t just expect to walk into the team, you have to work hard."

Morgan meanwhile has already been compared to Robbie Fowler by Liverpool stalwart Mark Wright and having achieved so much as such a tender age, is predicted to have a big future ahead of him.

"We need to understand that Adam Morgan is a natural goalscorer who has quality," said Reds reserve coach Pep Segura.
