Supporters Are Agreeing On The Same Point About Lingard And Sterling

Following another impressive display from both Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling against Italy, the England duo have got fans talking.

The attacking pair have enjoyed superb seasons for their respective Manchester clubs in the Premier League, and they have transferred that on to international level too.

After a 1-0 victory over the Netherlands, Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Italy, thanks to a decision to come from VAR late in proceedings.

Jamie Vardy opened the scoring before Lorenzo Insigne converted his spot-kick, following James Tarkowski conceding it, but supporters were full of praise for Lingard and Sterling.

Manchester United attacker Lingard and Manchester City wideman Sterling were both at the centre of immense praise from fans and pundits alike for their performances.

Despite their club allegiances across different sides of Manchester, the duo have forged a dangerous attacking partnership for their nation in front of goal.

Twitter definitely loved their link-up play:

Lingard and Sterling have the rest of the domestic campaign to continue their fine form before donning their national colours against Nigeria again in June.

They will then likely be headed for Russia, as the pair attempt to shine at the World Cup and maintain their high standards from the season so far.
