Raheem Sterling backs Joe Gomez after receiving boos from some England fans

After a section of England fans booed Joe Gomez in the 7-0 thrashing of Montenegro, Raheem Sterling has defended the Liverpool defender.

Gomez came on as a substitute in the 70th minute for Mason Mount but a section of the England fans booed his entrance on the pitch.

The Liverpool defender was involved in a training burst up on Monday with Raheem Sterling after they had a heated exchange in City's clash against the Reds last Sunday.

Sterling took to social media to condemn the reaction of England fans to Gomez after the match, "To all the England fans, I wanted to leave things at it was but tonight I have to speak again: it was hard for me to see my teammate get booed for something that was my fault.

"Joe hasn’t done anything wrong & for me to see someone who keeps his head down and work hard..especially after a difficult week for him to be booed when he came on tonight was wrong.

"I’ve taken full responsibility and accepted the consequence. I felt as though I had to say this get home safe everyone."
