Daily Debate: Should Liverpool's Raheem Sterling Start for England at World Cup?

Raheem Sterling earned the praise of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers after his lead role in the 3-2 win at Norwich City on Sunday, as Sky Sports reported.

The 19-year-old scored twice in the win at Carrow Road to send the Reds five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

And Rodgers is quoted as saying:

I think he is the best young player in European football at the moment.

He is 19 years of age and I don't see anyone better. He is intelligent with the ball and he has been concentrating on scoring goals.

His first goal was a wonderful strike and his pass for Luis' goal was like a top midfield player. Then there was his positioning for the counter-attack for the third goal.

His overall performance has shown so much maturity and, for me, he is the best young player in European football at the moment.

Sterling has been at the forefront of Liverpool's charge for the title this season, alongside Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge in the Anfield forward line.

The teenager's form could now see him claim a place in the England squad for the World Cup finals in Brazil this summer.

So should England manager Roy Hodgson open the 2014 campaign with Sterling in his starting XI for the first Group D match against Italy on June 14?
