London: Raheem Sterling ended a difficult week on a high as the teenager inspired his Liverpool F.C. to a dramatic 3-2 win over QPR in an incredible finish featuring three goals in stoppage-time at Loftus Road on Sunday.
Sterling had endured widespread derision after England manager Roy Hodgson revealed the Reds star had told him he was too tired to play in last weekend's Euro 2016 qualifier against Estonia. (Lay Off Raheem Sterling: Lampard Tells Critics)
The 19-year-old's commitment to his country and passion for the sport were subsequently questioned, but Sterling made a point to the critics as he played the entire 90 minutes at Loftus Road and produced two key contributions to seal the points for Brendan Rodgers' men.
