Raving About Raheem Sterling

His former coaches think 16-year old wonderkid Raheem Sterling development as a footballer is at the same level as Wayne Rooney at the same age. Raheem has been likened to Arsenal's Theo Walcott but it is said Sterling is even better than Walcott. A fast, pacey attacking midfield player who can “pass, shoot, head, score goals, tackle, defend” according to his Steve Gallen of QPR.

Definitely a prodigious talent and he was outstanding in the FA Youth Cup against Southend. With Dalglish, Clarke and Sammy Lee watching from the stands obviously gave the boys a lift. Scoring five goals, however must have been beyond Raheem's expectations.

This is the video of his five goals against Southend, pretty much showing off his entire repertoire of skills. Breathtaking dribbles, fantastic ability to drift past defenders, great shot and blistering pace. All this on his favoured right foot.

His reward for an excellent display? A trip to Prague to face Sparta in the Europa League. Not bad, is it?
