'One of the greatest': Gary Lineker says Spurs-linked attacking ace is truly 'magnificent'
Could Spurs get their hands on a European Championship winner this summer?
Tottenham have been linked with Manchester City and England attacker Raheem Sterling in recent weeks.
The Telegraph reported in June that City could potentially look to use Sterling as a makeweight to sign Spurs talisman Harry Kane.
Admittedly, neither Sterling nor Kane will be thinking about transfer speculation now, given the events of last night.
After 55 years, England are finally in the final of a major tournament once again.
And Sterling played a huge part in the Three Lions’ 2-1 extra-time victory over Denmark at Wembley.
The 26-year-old drove at the Danish defence time and time again, forced the own goal to bring England level, and won the penalty from which Harry Kane scored the winner.
And Gary Lineker loved Sterling’s heroics, taking to Twitter to praise him.
Sterling joined City from Liverpool in 2015 for a reported £57.3million.
He has made 292 competitive appearances for the Etihad side, clocking up 87 goals and 35 assists.
Sterling has won three Premier League titles, an FA Cup, five League Cups and two Community Shields.
He has won 67 caps for England, scoring 17 goals and registering 24 assists.
