Wembley Would Be A ‘Dream Come True’ For Sterling

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling is eyeing an FA Cup final appearance at Wembley, which he admits will be a dream come true.

 

"The school was literally two minutes away from the stadium," he told The Independent. "When it was being built I used to ride around there on my BMX, just circling the area. At first there was nothing there, then one day there was an arch and then on it went until it was finished. I never tried to sneak in but there was a little market there on a Sunday. That was the closest I got to it.

 

"For the first FA Cup final there between Chelsea and Manchester United they gave free tickets to the gifted and talented kids at the school. When I got to the stadium it was just beautiful. From that moment, I wanted to play there. It would be a dream come true."

 

The 18-year-old signed his first professional contract with Liverpool in December but he is taking nothing for granted.

 

''When you sign your contract, don't relax, you've got to push on to the next level because you don't want to disappear until nobody hears of you again."
