The 23-year-old is prolific for the Premier League champions – he netted 23 times last season and has four goals in ten appearances for the Blues this season.But in an England shirt, it’s a different story.Sterling has been an England international since 2012, but in almost six years he has scored just twice in international football – last finding the net for the Three Lions in 2015.The City forward’s form for his country came under scrutiny during the summer’s World Cup, where he again failed to score despite a host of decent chances throughout the tournament.England next play Spain in the Nations League on Monday evening, and Sterling has said he is confident of breaking his long drought. But his lack of goals for the Three Lions has stumped talkSPORT’s Ray Parlour.He said on Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “It is quite baffling to see, given how many goals he scores to Man City.“I know he’s playing with different players, like David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne, who are really going to create a lot of chances for you.“But he does seem to score some brilliant goals for City.“Everybody is waiting for him to do it for England now.” Sterling can’t stop scoring for Man City, but can’t find the net in an England shirt last_img
