Sterling Pays Tribute To Friend / Rice Appears As Classless Hungary Fans

Sterling pays poignant tribute with celebration, before Declan Rice goes viral for showing Hungarian fans classless

The scenes stemming from the first goal scored during England’s encounter with Hungary tonight have since gone viral for all the right reasons.

Kane among the scorers

Gareth Southgate’s men, of course, were back in action not long ago.

In the nation’s first competitive action test since suffering the heartbreak at the last European Championship, the Three Lions made the trip to the Puskas Arena, for a match with Hungary.

With Marco Rossi’s Hungary not proving easy at the Euro itself, a tough night was predicted for England in Budapest.

However, when all was said and done, the class of visitors simply proved to be too much.

After a frustrating 45 minutes of opening, the game finally came into action shortly before the hour mark, when a scintillating flurry down the left culminated in Mason Mount’s setback being placed at home by Raheem Sterling:

And, from here, the floodgates were opened.

Harry Kane was next on target, before Harry Maguire secured the three points for Southgate and company. with a header of his own five minutes later:

And there was even time for Declan Rice to add some sparkle to the scoreboard, culminating an excellent solo display with England’s fourth place just minutes from full time.

A good night for the Three Lions, who are marching towards a perfect 12 points out of 12 to open their qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup.

Rice’s viral moment

However, as described above, it is not the impressive nature of England’s eventual victory in the Hungarian capital that has made headlines in the aftermath of the clash ever since.

Instead, this came in the form of scenes directly after Sterling’s first game on Thursday night.

After taking his excellent scoring form on the international stage into the final round of matches, Sterling took off for the corner flag, before revealing a jersey under his jersey.

The shirt featured a personal message that read:

‘I will love you forever Steffie Gregg’

Gregg, who is believed to be a close friend of Sterling’s, sadly passed away at the age of just 26 this week, due to Covid-19.

However, Sterling’s efforts to pay tribute to Gregg were nearly ruined by a section of homeless supporters who attended the crash.

After boos rang out around the Puskas Stadium before tonight’s start, the Hungarian faithful again showed a total lack of class, throwing glasses filled with beer at the England goalkeeper in the middle of their celebration.

However, Three Lions teammate Declan Rice was the last to laugh.

Backing Sterling and the rest of the Gareth Southgate stars, who by now had joined in the celebrations, Rice was seen taunting the local fans, picking up one of the tossed drinks, before taking a big swig:
