England footballer Declan Rice apologises for pro-IRA Instagram post

QuizQuiz! Can you name every England hat-trick scorer since 1980

Raheem Sterling's hat trick helped England to a straightforward 5-0 win against Czech Republic to open their 2020 Euro qualification campaign at Wembley on Friday night.

The Tottenham striker has scored 21 goals in 36 England appearances but Southgate handed Sancho his first competitive start against the Czech Republic while giving Callum Hudson-Odoi a debut from the bench as he broadened his attacking options.

Sterling has been the target of much criticism previously while on global duty, but this time he proved his doubters wrong in an England shirt with an exceptional hat trick that bagged the Manchester City man the match ball.

Last year's World Cup semi-finalists have the inaugural Nations League Finals to look forward to this summer and 2019 started off on the right foot at a sold-out Wembley on Friday.

The 20-year-old West Ham player, who recently committed his worldwide future to England after having played some friendly matches for the Republic of Ireland, wrote what seems to be a pro-IRA message in 2015. Jadon, I've seen numerous times and every time I've seen him I get excited.

"He is a humble guy and I am just so delighted I am sharing the pitch with him and obviously I look up to him as a role model and especially starting with him was a great feeling".

"The goals in Spain [his first in 28 caps] were an important moment for him; you could see the release that had brought".

"I think we need to find the balance between freshness and continuity", commented the manager. "If we have any other concerns we'll have to review that on Saturday", Southgate said.

"We're playing good football, everyone is expressing themselves, we have young, hungry players and it showed tonight".

The teenager, who turns 19 when England face Montenegro on Monday, has been a revelation in the Bundesliga this season for Borussia Dortmund. He's really focused on his training and his preparation, and I think he's enjoyed that extra responsibility as well.

"We'd have given him a bit longer in the Under-21s".

The incident has overshadowed Rice's first England call-up since making the decision to switch worldwide allegiance from Republic of Ireland, but Southgate said it will not affect the 20-year-old's chances of featuring at Wembley.
