Sterling received the ball just past the halfway line and immediately had to fend off two Shaktar players before using his blistering pace to burst forward, when Sterling reached the edge of the box he curled in a spectacular strike into the top corner.

Sterling’s actions tonight seem to have gone full circle; from tripping over the turf and being the centre of one of the worst decision in football in recent times to scoring a magnificent solo goal in the second-half.
