Roy Hodgson has said that Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is likely to make his senior England debut in next month's friendly against Sweden.

Sterling scored his first goal for the Reds in yesterday's 1-0 win over Reading and Hodgson is now keen to give the 17-year-old a chance to perform on the international stage.

"I will use the November game in Sweden to look at a few players," the Three Lions boss told The People.

"Sterling is one. We allowed him to go with the Under-21s last time when we might well have taken him into our squad had they not had such an important game."

Kingston-born Sterling is also eligible to play for Jamaica.
