Gareth Southgate dropped Sterling from the England squad following the Manchester City star's altercation with Gomez.

Sterling watched on from the stands as England thrashed Montenegro 7-0, with the Liverpool man making a 20-minute cameo appearance.

The 22-year-old defender was booed by some England fans at Wembley Stadium as he came off the bench, and Sterling has claimed responsibility for the incident on social media.

"To all the England fans, I wanted to leave things at it was but tonight I have to speak again : it was hard for me to see my team mate get booed for something that was my fault. Joe hasn't done anything wrong & for me to see someone who keeps his head down and work hard," he wrote on Twitter.

He added: "Especially after a difficult week for him to be booed when he came on tonight was wrong. I've taken full responsibility and accepted the consequence. I felt as though I had to say this get home safe every one."

Sterling applauded Gomez onto the pitch, appearing to squash their beef.

Meanwhile, England have booked their spot for next summer's Euro 2020 by beating Montenegro at home.

Harry Kane scored a hat-trick with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Marcus Rashford, Aleksandar Sofranac (OG) and Tammy Abraham also getting on the scoresheet.

England play Kosovo on Sunday in their final Euro 2020 qualifier.
