Raheem Sterling scored twice for England in the first half of their UEFA Nations League game against Spain to end a goal drought that went all the way back to October 2015.

The Manchester City winger opened the scoring in the 16th minute with an assist coming from Marcus Rashford of neighbours United.

Rashford himself them doubled England’s lead over Spain in the 29th minute before Sterling capped off an incredible first half for the Three Lions by scoring in the 38th minute, making it Spain 0-3 England after 45 minutes.
