Sterling has been recalled to the England squad for Wednesday's friendly with Denmark after a number of eye-catching performances for Liverpool in recent weeks.

The 19-year-old won his first cap for England in November 2012, but dropped down the pecking order in Roy Hodgson's plans after a slump in form at Anfield.

However, Sterling has battled his way back into the England set-up and Rodgers believes Hodgson will be watching a different player from the one he saw before.

"I just think that a year or so down the line from his first cap, England will be seeing a player with much greater maturity and a young player who has produced in big games," Rodgers said.

"He's a kid who's just turned 19 but he's a father now, that brings maturity into your life and he's coping with that remarkably well.

"You see a young player who's getting stronger and stronger every day; a young player who, tactically, has improved his level impressively."
