Photo: The unbelievable diving header Tottenham teenager Kazaiah Sterling scored for England

Kazaiah Sterling has posted a photo of his impressive diving header for England's under-17 side.


Tottenham youngster Kazaiah Sterling opened his international account earlier this week, netting an impressive header for England's under-17 side in a friendly against Portugal.

After the 1-1 draw we reported Sterling's goal, highlighting him as another gem to watch in Tottenham's impressive academy.

He has since posted a set of photos on his Twitter account, displaying his incredible leap to head home during the draw.

The teenager can be seen flinging himself at the ball inside the box to beat the onrushing goalkeeper to the ball.

Sterling had told the FA website after the game: "As it was coming I just tried to jump my highest – the keeper was flying out and I thought he was going to catch me, but it’s always worth it to get a goal.

"It was one of the proudest moments of my life so far, and it feels like my hard work was rewarded. I don’t get many headers either, so that made it even more special."

Sterling was handed a start in England's final game of the Algarve tournament as reward for his efforts, but England lost 2-0 to tournament winners Germany.

A Tottenham appearance is clearly some way off for the Spurs under-18 striker, but he is clearly a player whose progress is one to keep a keen eye on.

The Spurs forward came closest to scoring, rounding the German goalkeeper but was forced too wide to land his effort on target.
