Iheanacho, Sterling Lift Man City Against Roma

New Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling scored three minutes into his debut in a friendly against Roma in Melbourne on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old, who joined City for £49m from Liverpool on 14 July, ran through on goal before finishing as City took an early 1-0 lead at the MCG.

Sterling started on the left side of a front three that included David Silva and teenage forward Kelechi Iheanacho. City are playing in the International Champions Cup tournament in Australia.

Sterling, who became the most expensive English player ever when he made the move from Liverpool to City, slipped on the ball after 49 seconds of the game and later had a strong call for a penalty turned down.

Miralem Pjanic equalised for Roma with a stunning long-range strike before Iheanacho pounced on a poor Ashley Cole back pass to regain the lead for City early in the second half
