Raheem Sterling: England hat-trick 'what dreams are made of'

Sunday 08:03 GMT

It was the first hat-trick by an England player at Wembley since Jermain Defoe against Bulgaria in 2010 and was a landmark moment for Sterling, who had scored only four goals in his previous 47 internationals.

Fast forward three years to their first qualifying match for Euro 2020 and Sterling was the hero, scoring a hat-trick and winning a penalty as the Three Lions thrashed the Czech Republic 5-0 at Wembley.
