Stupid question of the day award goes to the interviewer who said “ Does that goal justify your selection ? “Confess I was not impressed with the selection of out of form Sterling ( as opposed to the controversial Trippier selection which I could see some logic to)
However I think the show of faith has really lifted him and he has mentally blocked out his City form and convinced himself he is a different player in an England shirt
His smile and twinkling eyes in the post match interview were totally uplifting , probably for the whole nation, and I am absolutely delighted for him.
There is a possibility he could now go on to be the player of the tournament.
