sport news Sterling has 1,000 reasons to 'go crazy' if he ends England drought

Raheem Sterling has vowed to 'go crazy' if he ends an England goal drought which is close to reaching 1,000 days.

Sterling has scored only twice for his country in 40 caps, the last of which came against Estonia on October 9, 2015.

That lean patch is in stark contrast to his form at Manchester City, where he scored 23 times last season.

Sterling is expected to return to the starting XI for Tuesday's last-16 clash against Colombia and will not be indulging in any pre-prepared dance routines if he hits the back of the net - 999 days after his previous strike.

He said: 'To be honest, I'm not a Jesse (Lingard), who has his celebrations stored. I can't dance, I'm stiff as hell.

'It's the World Cup...put it in the back of the net, go crazy.'
