The 19-year-old featured heavily at his first senior international tournament but Roy Hodgson's side failed to advance beyond the group stages.

Sterling is looking to build on his displays in Brazil and take it into a new season with his Premier League club with UEFA Champions League football on the horizon.

"For any young person to be involved in such a big tournament is obviously a great experience and it was no different for myself," he told LoopJamaica.com.

"It was a good feeling to get out there on the pitch and show the world what I could do. Obviously on a team performance level we are disappointed with how the tournament went.

"We would have liked to be in the tournament up until now and all the way to the final but that was not the case. It was a learning curve for me - an experience I am willing to learn from.

"Hopefully we build from this World Cup experience and go even further in the next four years."

While some of his Liverpool team-mates who were not involved in the World Cup have returned to pre-season training, Sterling is currently spending time in his native Jamaica after being granted extra time off by Liverpool.

But that has not stopped him thinking about the campaign ahead after a second-place finish last season raised expectations for Brendan Rodgers' side.

"Last season we did really well as a team. This season we will just go in the same as we did last year and take it step by step, week in week out," he added.

"Hopefully we can do well as a team and a collective. We will be going out there on a positive note and hopefully we can do what we know we can do."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
