I don't get Barkley, wouldn't start him for us, constantly just shoots with no real threat

Well if ever there was a goal that smacked of overconfidence....

Edit now level.

France 92% posession Andorra 8%. Know 'possession don't mean much' but think it might just figure here

Andorra nearly got their first ever European Qualifying point the other day, but conceded away to Turkey in the 90th minute

Nope, it's surprisingly easy to do when you're anticipating contact by the goalkeeper. Still a bit embarassing at this level, but not quite as ridiculous as it first looks.

****ing hell how good is Sterling these days? Gotta be one of the top ten players in the world, pushing top five, absolute joy to watch, works hard, works smart, very productive. Can't say enough positive about him.

Though worth noting Declan set that up with a great tackle...

Great tackle from rice leads to the fourth.

Can only echo what others have said about Sterling. Bloke is real quality.

Sancho looks the real deal too.

That touch and acceleration, just a minute ago.

Pele would have been proud.

This is brilliant. :thup:

Have been standing up for Sterling for years, not just on here, the sky is the limit for that lad.

Sancho also looks such a threat.

I feel a bit for Kosovo, their gaffer seems to have lost his head completely.

The big test and still unanswered for me, is not just Sterling but most of Man City players, need to do it in the Champions League or a big international tournament

I must admit, Sterling used to frustrate me no end, but he really has become integral to the England set-up; it's all great to watch.

The only thing spoiling the evening for me is Roy Keane.
