England manager Gareth Southgate is certain that Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has the attributes of a great leader.
The Three Lions boss showered high praise on Sterling during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifying clash with Montenegro.
England travel to Podgorica to take on Montenegro in the second game of their qualifiers after the Three Lions thrashed Czech Republic 5-0 in the opening match of their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.
The 1966 World champions will be hoping to maintain their perfect start to the qualifiers.
The England manager believes that Raheem Sterling is a future captain material.
Raheem Sterling was in devastating form against Czech Republic and the Manchester City player will be targeting the same against Montenegro.
The former Liverpool attacker scored a treble to set England on their way to an emphatic win over Czech Republic in their first game of the qualifiers.
He became the first England player to score a treble for club and country for the first time in two decades after Alan Shearer.
Raheem Sterling had earlier netted a hattrick as Manchester City defeated London club Watford 3-1 at home as the Citizens maintain their push to retain the Premier League title they won last season.
