As The Sun reveals the young international partied until 3am the night after England’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Estonia, we’ve gathered together all the best Raheem Sterling tired jokes from the past couple of weeks.
The Sleepygate controversy continues to haunt the Liverpool midfielder after manager Roy Hodgson left him out of the starting eleven in Tallinn, claiming the player had complained of feeling “tired” following the clash with San Marino three days earlier.
Sterling eventually came on as a late substitute but the allegations have dogged the 19-year-old ever since and now the British tabloid has claimed that he was out all night at a club just 24 hours after apparently being “too tired” to play in the 1-0 win over Estonia.
To complement the media coverage, these are the best Raheem Sterling tired jokes we could find:

Hardly surprising that Raheem Sterling needs a break, raising 24 children must be very tiring!

Roy Hodgson left Loftus Road with 10 minutes to go… and missed four goal in seven minutes. We are hearing that he felt tired. @sterling31
