UK: England's Southgate praises Sterling after 4-0 win against Bulgaria

United Kingdom, London
September 07, 2019 at 22:26 GMT +00:00 · Published

England manager Gareth Southgate praised his player Raheem Sterling at a post-game presser in London on Saturday. Sterling scored one of the four goals against Bulgaria during the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers earlier in the evening.

"I thought he was outstanding. In the first half in particular where it was difficult to find space, we were a little slow moving the ball," said Southgate.

Southgate called the match against Bulgaria "challenging at times."

The Bulgarian team manager Krasimir Balakov said that the four goals scored against them were "our individual mistakes. So even though I think the result was fair, I was not happy with it as it was a matter of our mistakes."

England sit at the top of Group A with nine points, while Bulgaria lie in fourth position with only two points.
