Raheem Sterling backs Joe Gomez amid England fans boos at Wembley

Raheem Sterling backs Joe Gomez amid England fans boos at Wembley

Gareth Southgate praised his team's ability to cut through opposition defences after watching England hammer Montenegro 7-0 to book their place at Euro 2020.

His maiden goal for his country completes a memorable 2019 for the 22-year-old after winning promotion to the Premier League with Aston Villa and scoring 11 goals in 18 games for Chelsea this season.

When pushed on whether England can end 54 years of hurt next summer, he said: "I believe so".

Gareth Southgate admitted to being perplexed by the reception Gomez received and Manchester City forward Sterling took to Twitter to describe it as "wrong".

Gomez was jeered by home fans during the 7-0 win over Montenegro.

"It is hard to talk about a game like this and the result we had", said Montenegro coach Faruk Hadzilbegic.

Gomez was booed by some fans at Wembley when he entered came on as a substitute. "I felt as though I had to say this get home safe every one".

Global oil demand growth to slow from 2025: IEA
The report lays out a more ambitious forecast if governments are to meet the goals in the 2015 United Nations climate accord. U.S. consumers and businesses were a leading source of growing oil demand previous year , the IEA says.


Asked if England can finally win their first major tournament since the 1966 World Cup, Abraham said: "I believe so".

'No one deserves to get booed, everyone is behind Joe, he is a great player and a great guy and we all support everyone.

With Leicester playmaker James Maddison - England legacy cap No. 1245 - also catching the eye with an assured (and somewhat belated) second-half debut, the only bum note for Southgate were the boos that greeted Gomez's entrance as a replacement for Mount.

Captain Harry Kane, who scored a hat-trick as England sealed Euro 2020 qualification, told ITV after the match that Sterling's exclusion following the incident was a team decision and the player's apology means there are no hard feelings within the camp.

"All of the players are particularly disappointed with that". We're a team and Joe has done nothing wrong. Also, I know I'm going to start Raheem on Sunday and get him back on to the pitch as well, because it was important for both of them to get back on the field with England and show everybody that we're all in this now.

"Yeah then wrote a book telling everyone about it all - so obviously learnt his lesson", another user tweeted before adding "Yeah i suspect he won't be taking advice from you on how to deal with dressing rooms".

"He's got to feel the support of everybody, which he has, completely".
