The Manchester City star is understood to have been heckled with a racist remark during the first half of the Euro 2020 qualifier.

Sterling and Harry Kane were the stars of the show for the Three Lions, with the winger’s goal and assist and the striker’s hat-trick helping Gareth Southgate’s side to a 4-0 win.

But the gloss of the victory has been dulled by the latest report of racism within the game, for which Sterling is a key figure in the fight against.
