VIDEO: Sterling embarrasses Lambert in Liverpool training

Raheem Sterling

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling has nutmugged his teammate Rickie Lambert in a training exercise today.

Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling looked in sharp form in training as he prepared for his first Champions League fixture. 

The 19-year-old winger is yet to play in Europe's elite competition, but he was in fine form at training today - showcasing his skills at the expense of one of his teammates.

Sterling is famous for his skill, but Rickie Lambert would have been rather embarrassed to be nutmegged in the manner he was in a keep-ball session. 

Sterling, though, did not seem too keen on sparing his England and Liverpool teammate's blushes, as he posted the video on Instagram (see above).

The Reds are preparing to take on Ludogorets in their game of the Champions League, as they look to make a successful return to Europe's premier club competition.

Brendan Rodgers's side are heavy favourites to take the three points against one of the lesser known teams in the group stage, but they will have to react positively from a disappointing defeat at the weekend to Aston Villa if they are to do so.
