Raheem Sterling's second-half penalty for Manchester City was enough to see them edge out Wolves on Saturday afternoon and also brought the England star his 100th Premier League goal.

Having seen opportunities hard to come by at club level earlier in the season, Sterling has battled his way back to being a regular again while retaining his importance to Gareth Southgate at international level after such an influential European Championships over the summer.

2022 promises to be another big year as City chase glory on all fronts and Sterling, having struggled to make his mark in Russia four years ago, ready to do battle once again on the biggest stage of all at the World Cup.

The start of the tournament will come almost exactly 10 years after he made his England debut as a 17-year-old against Sweden in November 2012.

A decade later and Sterling has 72 caps to his name and an 18-goal haul in a Three Lions shirt that he will look to significantly increase over the next 12 months.
