Raheem Sterling’s eventful road to the World Cup took another turn during England’s 2-1 friendly win over Nigeria on Saturday after he was booked for diving.

Simulating a fall in the opposition penalty box earned the Manchester City star a yellow card to follow the controversy surrounding the recent unveiling of a large gun tattooed on his leg.

These were the best Raheem Sterling dive jokes from England 2-1 Nigeria:
